A chairde,
Sheol cara riomhpost chugam inniu a rá go bhfuil an príomhcharachtúr sa scannán is déanaí den chuid Clint Eastwood atá ag foghlaim Gaeilge.
Is é seo píosa ó alt faoin scannán a bhí sa NY Times an maidin seo:

Mr. Eastwood (who, speaking of music, also composed the film's gentle, unobtrusive score) plays Frankie Dunn, the owner of a tidy, beat-up gym tucked away in a shabby corner of Los Angeles. His best friend, who supplies world-weary voiceover narration to help the plot through its occasional thickets, is Eddie Dupris, (Morgan Freeman) a former fighter (nicknamed Scrap) whom Frankie managed long ago.
Both men carry some heavy frustration and regret - Frankie has lost a daughter, Scrap has lost an eye - but they bear the weight gracefully and with good-humored fatalism, reconciled to loneliness and the diminishing returns of age. Scrap spars with the young would-be tough guys who hang out in the gym and watches out for the slow-witted orphan who is both their mascot and their scapegoat. Frankie, meanwhile, reads Yeats, studies Gaelic [Gaeilge, is dóigh liom...] and goes to Mass every day, mainly to annoy the prickly young priest with inane theological challenges. The banter between Scrap and Frankie - the way that Mr. Freeman's warmth and wit play against Mr. Eastwood's gruff reserve - is one of the movie's chief pleasures, and for long, satisfying spells Mr. Eastwood pushes aside the demands of storytelling to savor the comforts and abrasions of longtime friendship.


Tá orm an scannán a fheiceáil anois! Tá a-lán meas agam ar Eastwood mar stiúrthoir.

Bhuel, sin é.
Slán tamall,
Paul
