3 stars out of 5 -- "As James, Gallery is funny and believable without trying too hard to be charming, and he plays well off of everyone in the movie..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/07/2009
"[A]n amusing Irish coming-of-age comedy set in 1979..."
New York Times - 11/13/2009
"Written and directed by Michael Aimette and John G. Hofmann, TURNING GREEN is the kind of smirking yarn that might be told in one of the pubs where James picks up spare change collecting bets..."
Normally, Americans in Ireland are awed by their verdant surroundings, but not teenage James (Donal Gallery). It's 1979, and he has been stuck in a small town for six years, dying to get out and back to his native country. James's unusual scheme involves trips to London (sanctioned by his adopted family and for sound medical reasons, of course) where he can buy porn to sell in Ireland, where it is illegal. This quirky comedy stars Timothy Hutton, Alessandro Nivola, and Colm Meaney.
