The Snapper

The Snapper Movie Poster

Originally made for television, this is a slice-of-life film which charts the changing relationship between 20-year-old Sharon (Kellagher) and her father Jimmy Sr (Meaney) from the time she tells him she's pregnant to the birth of the child. Jimmy Sr's efforts to care for his daughter and her snapper (Irish slang for "baby") are confounded by her refusal to admit who the dad is, while Sharon has to come to terms with the rumors being spread all over their North Dublin housing scheme.
