There’s a blurb at Fox Searchlight about the film: “Release: November 29, Director: Jim Sheridan, Written by: Jim Sheridan & Naomi Sheridan & Kirsten Sheridan, Producers: Jim Sheridan, Arthur Lappin, Cast: Samantha Morton, Paddy Considine, Sarah Bolger, Emma Bolger and Djimon Hounsou.
Academy Award-winning Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In The Name of The Father) directs the semi-autobiographical EAST OF HARLEM (working title). With their two young daughters in tow, Johnny and Sarah emigrate from Ireland to New York City in pursuit of a dream. The family uses ingenuity and sheer strength of will to make the most of their new life. Ultimately it is their kindness to a stranger and that stranger’s response in return that builds their new home.”
The film’s title was later changed to ‘In America’.
