4. Snapper -Comedy about a close-knit, boisterous Irish family, and the commotion that follows the oldest daughter's announcement that she is pregnant.

5. Intermission - Starring Colin Farrell. In the suburbs of Dublin, more than a dozen strangers find their paths colliding in sometimes violent, sometimes absurd ways.

6. The Commitments - Fueled by raw talent and driven by dreams of glory, a dozen dead-enders from Dublin's gritty North Side share a passion for soul music that takes their band on a wild rollercoaster ride from the streets to superstardom.
