No stones in slingshots. No skirmishes too late in the day. Theyre rules of war for the youngsters of two neighboring Irish villages. And heres another rule: if you spit-shake on something, you better follow through. Kids will be kids. But sometimes they, in their own fanciful ways, will be adults. Whats unique and marvelous here, Oscar-winning* Chariots of Fire screenwriter Colin Welland says, is that its not an adults view of childhood at all, but a childs view of adulthood. Welland joins fellow Chariots of Fire Academy Award winner* David Puttnam for a winning tale in which buttons are the spoils of a would-be war. The rival teens are screen newcomers, but you wouldnt know it from their seasoned performances. And if you dont know why Ireland is the Emerald Isle, this scenic charmer is breathtaking proof. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc.
