It’s St. Patrick’s Day, so it only seems fitting to highlight a few of the many Irish films that have premiered during the Sundance Film Festival.  If you feel inspired, each title is available via iTunes or Netflix.Jim Sheridan’s thematically rich, emotionally textured semi-autobiographical, In America, stars Paddy Considine and Samantha Morton, and premiered during the 2003 Festival. Premiering at the 2007 Festival, John Carney’s Once sports a scrappy, unembellished naturalism - the burdened and brokenhearted Dublin busker and young Czech immigrant’s musical bond is the heart of the film and their love.  John Michael McDonagh’s 2011 debut feature, The Guard, stars Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson and transcends the rules of the buddy cop comedy, wryly offering genuine humor and thrills against an unexpectedly moving portrait of its protagonist.Film stills courtesy of Sundance Institute Archives; The Guard still by Jonathan Hession
