Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Nora.
Toronto Star - 8/10 by Geoff PevereLynch manages to make Nora's temperamental tempestuousness not only credible and admirable, but deeply alluring.
Los Angeles Times - 8/10 by Kevin ThomasThe filmmakers' special triumph lies in the inspired way that in the nick of time it draws its story to a close, with Nora and Joyce struggling toward a new level of understanding.
L.A. Weekly - 7/10 by F. X. FeeneyWe may not fully grasp what Nora saw in Joyce, but what he saw in her is made unmistakable, and worth seeing.
Las Vegas Review-Journal - 6/10 by Carol ClingIntense performances, but a literal literary downer.
New Times - 6/10 by Bill GalloA must-see for Joyce fans, feminist historians great and small and admirers of the Emerald Isle.

User Review - 10/10 by David SDespite what any one says, this is an amazing period romance that tells the true story of the Irish novelist James Joyce and Susan Lynch plays his wife and lover, Susan Barnacle. They fall in love and they have their difficulties but they still stay married through it all. Truly an amazing film.
