December 1870, and we pick up on the adventures of Mathilda "Tilly" Bassett and her rich grandmother Isabella, having toured some of Europe's cultural centers and are now arriving in Dublin for a month-long stay. Tilly's inner struggle is between being a society woman in-the-making and the Yankee farm girl that are her roots.

Isabella's mission is to expose Tilly to the world of letters; that's why she's bringing her to Dublin, to meet Ireland's poet laureate, the Earl of Shannon. But there's a saying throughout Ireland: "If you want to make God laugh, try making plans."

This film is very good. You should watch it but without distractions. It will be slow for someone that expects "Vampires and Hobbits".

This is a gentle film that lets an audience take in the surroundings and environment. It also a film about the "old country vs the new country". It also makes you think at what "really matters". It questions what is most important. The questions include Whats Important 1) What people expect from you 2) what do you expect of yourself 3)Should you always follow your heart?
