Ellen B. of White Bear Lake shakes things up with a movie list. According to Ellen, "No reason for this list – except that I LOVE those British Isles accents."
My Top Ten Movies with a Scottish or Irish Accent:
Dear Frankie. Starring Gerard Butler. Sweet, touching.
Mrs. Brown. Starring Billy Connolly. Connolly shines as Queen Victoria’s guide and groom in this historical drama.
Merry Gentleman. Starring Kelly MacDonald. Michael Keaton directs and stars – a quiet, character study of a film.
Chicken Run. For Wallace and Gromit fans.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Starring Sean Connery. Come on… it’s Indy!
Waking Ned Devine. Divine little comedy set in Ireland.
Once. Starring Glen Hansard.
Wind that Shakes the Barley. Starring Cillian Murphy. Historical drama about the anti-Brit rebellion in Ireland in the early 20th century.
In the Name of the Father. Starring Daniel Day Lewis.
