Details: Jimmy Rabbitte (Robert Arkins) knows he’s the world’s greatest band manager…. Now he just needs a band. Auditioning everyone he can find, Jimmy gathers ten of the most talented, least experienced musicians from the rough streets of working class Dublin, Ireland,…with a plan to launch the best soul band ever to take the stage. “Sparked by fine performances by its young cast” (Rotten Tomatoes), The Commitments is a loving tribute to the fire and passion of the great Soul standards – “Mustang Sally,” “In the Midnight Hour,” “Chain of Fools,” and many more – from Oscar-nominated director Alan Parker (Mississippi Burning, Pink Floyd the Wall, Fame).
Ogham is the earliest written form of Primitive Irish, the oldest of the Gaelic languages. Ogham was first used in Ireland and parts of England, Scotland and Wales between the 2nd and 6th centuries. Though its actual origins remain a mystery today, it is believed the Celts desired a cryptic alphabet that could not be deciphered by Roman Britain.
Represented as a series of perpendicular and intersecting lines, this ancient script is thought to be influenced by the Latin alphabet using 20 characters. It is most commonly written vertically and is read from bottom to top. When presented horizontally, it is read from left to right.
