10 New & Used Starting at $1.99


Illustrated with more than 70 full-color photographs, this charming book captures writer/director/producer Jim Sheridan's most personal and magical story yet, the tale of a family finding its soul, In America, which he co-wrote with his daughters, Naomi Sheridan and Kirsten Sheridan. Based on his own experiences coming to New York as a flat-broke immigrant, as well as remembrances of a devastating family tragedy, In America confronts the mysterious nature of love, loss, and finding new hope.

With forewords by the screenwriters detailing their writing process and revealing unbelievable moments from their own journey to America in the 1980s, this lovely portrait of the film includes the entire screenplay, an illuminating conversation between Jim Sheridan and Columbia University's Director of Undergraduate Film Studies Annette Insdorf, biographies of the filmmakers and actors, and the full cast and crew credits.
