  • THE SNAPPER is a humorous look at what happens when an unmarried, working class Irish girl, Sharon Curley (Tina Kellegher) gets pregnant and refuses to identify the father. Steeped in the atmosphere and dialogue of present-day Dublin, screenwriter Roddy Doyle and director Stephen Frears create a charming and realistic slice of suburban Irish life. The film was followed by Doyle and Frears' collaboration on THE VAN, the third of the "Barrytown" trilogy.
