Quiet film about a Northern Ireland village during World War II. With the proximity of an American base, it sometimes upsets village life. I enjoyed it.

We have seen something similar before and this wasn’t done nearly as well.

Very enjoyable series, looking forward to another season because they left us hanging...

Life and love in rural Ireland in 1943 narrated by a young boy. Love, passion, hate, booze near an American air base. Real or stereotipical drinking wild Irish and "take it easy" Americans.

Great Stories, hope they have more Seasons as the Ending left me to wonder what the future
would be for the Family.

I hope there is another season. Lots of questions left unanswered.

The story focusses on the mother, as the title might suggest, with the boy as an observer during his coming-of-age. I like that the mother is torn between her love for two decent men. All of the storylines rise above cliché, while portraying small town life with a nostalgic hue. The voice-over of the boy as a writer and man reminds me of The Waltons TV series. I hope this Masterpiece series will continue and look forward to seeing how the conflicts and characters develop.

Starts out focusing on the boy, but as it moves towards the mother it gets interesting. Ended up really liking it and am looking forward to the next series.
