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.
