Peter Mullan’s Orphans find a new ‘home’

Kenny Smith


The film, written and directed by Mullan, told the story of the four Flynn siblings – three brothers and a sister – who after the death of their mother are torn apart during a long dark night, on the eve of her funeral, of mishaps and understandings.

Such was the cult of the movie that it even spawned its own catchphrase – ‘She ain’t heavy she’s ma mother.’
