Barnacle, a hotel maid recently come from Galway. She enchants him with her frank, uninhibited manner, and before long, he's convinced her to come with him to Trieste. Over time Nora pulls him through phobias, tolerates his drinking, takes in his brother Stan and bests Joyce at 'the writin' game' to bring him back to Italy from Dublin where he's gone to open a cinema. But his sexual jealousy threatens the relationship and sends her back to Galway with the children

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    The filmmakers' special triumph lies in the inspired way that in the nick of time it draws its story to a close, with Nora and Joyce struggling toward a new level of understanding.

  • 80

    New Times (L.A.) Bill Gallo

    This nicely acted study of a love that survived all manner of trauma is a must-see for Joyce fans, feminist historians great and small and admirers of the Emerald Isle.

  • 60

    Mr. Showbiz Kevin Maynard

    Like "Pollock," Nora is a convincing portrait of the intersection between creative genius and crazy, all-consuming love.
