The Pier (2011)


Jack McCarthy left Ireland for the US 20 years ago when his business failed and hr had to get out in a hurry. Now he's called home by his father, Larry, who says he's dying.

Finding his father apparently fit enough to hit golf balls in a field of cattle. Jack is furious but decides to stay in Cork when he meets an American tourist, Grace - although she's quick to tell him she's just out of a divorce and not ready for another relationship. Jack tries to call in debts from local people who owe his father money, but their time together becomes more and more unbearable until Larry is finally honest with his son.
