Impressive and familiar Love & Savagery 

You'd better enjoy traditional Irish music because you won't escape it here.

Love & Savagery takes place in 1969 Ballyvaughan, in Ireland. Newfoundlander, poet and geologist Michael (Allan Hawco) is there to look at rocks, though swiftly becomes interested in local barmaid Cathleen (Sarah Greene). But Cathleen's bound for the nunnery and the village's highly protective men-folk don't take kindly to some outsider distracting fair Cathleen so near to her betrothal with the almighty. John N. Smith (Dangerous Minds) directs a straightforward but affecting story---adapted by Des Walsh from his own book---that feels as if it could have been made in 1969, it's so comfortingly familiar. Visuals of Ireland's green slopes and fractured stone never fail to impress, though you'd better enjoy traditional Irish music because you won't escape it here.
