A Greyhound of a Girl
Luxembourg, Italy, Ireland, UK, Latvia, Estonia, Germany, 2023
Mary is a smart, lively 11-year-old with an irrepressible passion for cooking encouraged by her sympathetic grandmother Emer, though somewhat frowned upon by the rest of her family. Her culinary adventures and vivid imagination take her on a magical trip through time, bringing generations of women in her family together. Beautifully adapted from Roddy Doyle’s novel, Enzo d’Alò’s gorgeous, playful animation presents a sweet vision of Ireland, of Dublin and Wexford, and has a recognisable voice cast. While affectingly touching on illness and grief, there is an impressive lightness to A Greyhound of a Girl making it a joyful, celebratory family film and recommended viewing for all ages.
