:: Nora

Based on a true story, ‘Nora’ details the life of Irish writer James Joyce. In the early 20th century, Joyce was a struggling writer trying to make his mark in the literary world. Then he met Nora, a tall brunette from Galway whom he met passing in the street. Joyce fell in love with her instantly. Although many difficulties resulted throughout their relationship, ultimately love conquered all. Nora was Joyce’s one love and the inspiration that fuelled his brilliant literary career.

Credit must be given to Ewan McGregor’s excellent performance as James Joyce, particularly his impeccable Irish accent! Although the movie is very drawn out in parts, ‘Nora’ is very much a period piece and provides an accurate representation of the era in which it is set, and comments significantly on the religious, cultural and moralistic issues of the time.
