The Nephew

"Weak"

The Nephew Review


When the half-black, half-Irish son of a dead woman returns to mom's home in Eire, he ends up sparking a feud between two men who loved his mother. Slow and plodding, The Nephew ends up being too too Irish for my tastes, featuring some rather dry and petty squabbling between the two men. Not much else here that's new, either -- just the same old pipe music and sweeping vistas of the emerald isle.
