Movie of the Week: November 23, 2020 – Waking Ned Devine

Jackie O’Shea, a resident of the tiny Irish coastal village of Tully More, discovers that one of his neighbors has won the lottery – the question is, who? It takes some doing, but Jackie figures out that the lucky person is none other than his new best friend, Ned Devine. Unfortunately, it turns out Ned is in no position to collect the jackpot, which totals almost 6.9 million Irish pounds. So Jackie and his real best friend, Michael O’Sullivan, try to figure out a way to share in Ned’s good fortune – after all, Ned would want it that way. But things get a lot more complicated than either Jackie or Michael could have anticipated.
