The Closer You Get (2000)

Film details


Comedy. The unmarried male inhabitants of an Irish village place an advertisement in an American newspaper for women to come and join them at their annual event, the St. Martha's Day dance, but it looks as though nobody is likely to turn up. Even worse for the local lads is the fact that the women of the community have become friendly with a group of Spanish fishermen in the vicinity, who have agreed to play music at the forthcoming festivities.
