About this product
- DescriptionMammy is what Irish children call their mothers and <b>The Mammy</b> is Agnes Browne a widow struggling to raise seven children in a North Dublin neighborhood in the 1960s. Popular Irish comedian <b>Brendan O'Carroll</b> chronicles the comic misadventures of this large and lively family with raw humor and great affection. Forced to be mother, father, and referee to her battling clan, the ever-resourceful Agnes Browne occasionally finds a spare moment to trade gossip and quips with her best pal Marion Monks (alias The Kaiser ) and even finds herself pursued by the amorous Frenchman who runs the local pizza parlor.Like the vels of Roddy Doyle, <b>The Mammy</b> features pitch-perfect dialogue, lightning wit, and a host of colorful characters. Earthy and exuberant, the vel brilliantly captures the brash energy and cheerful irreverence of working-class Irish life.</p><b>Now a major motion picture starringAnjelica Huston</b></p>
