    Emerald City was by far the best movie I’ve seen this year. Why is Emerald City movie not in the Best Irish movie of the year category..

    Have you watched Emerald City. I don’t think so. Demons confronted and exposed. Amazing movie and story based on true life story of Irish abroad .

    Where’s Emerald City? Best movie I’ve seen about being working class Irish living in NYC and struggling to bring your dream to reality.

    No Emerald City? Saw it at the Belfast Film Festival. Gem of a movie, great story, amazing performancs.

    Thank you to all of those interested in voting for Emerald City. It did not meet the criteria of having a cinema release of more than one day and/or in more than one cinema.

    Got to see Emerald City the other week. Top, top movie, gritty, funny and heartbreaking in equal measure. Loved the rawness of it and the brilliantly natural performances from all the cast. Haven’t felt as impacted by a movie in quite a while. 5 Stars from me…… Go see it !!!
