Movie Haiku:Thereís a lot to like in this semi-autobiographical story about an Irish family living illegally in 1980ís Manhattan, but midway thru it turns totally predictable & we left the theater in dry-eyed disappointment. Question: When will charismatic Djimon Hounsou finally get a part thatís worthy of him?
