From the CLR Vaults: The film Garage and depictions of the rural working class – 2007 September 8, 2010

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Culture.

A staggering piece of work alright and it isn’t aging at all. Shortt was incredible as Josie.

For all the sneering at d’unbelievables and killinascully I think they work for the same reason Garage works, though obviously only for cheap laughs rather than social commentary, but still.

People who were reared in rural Ireland recognise all the characters all around them all the time.
