A Shine of Rainbows (2009) Poster

Aidan Quinn: Alec


  • Maire : You're disappointed, aren't you?

    Alec : I agreed to it.

    Maire : Aye, but now that you've seen him, you are disappointed.

    Alec : I'll not deny I expected you to choose a boy that had the making of a man in him. I don't see why you chose the runt of the litter.

  • Maire : Have you noticed that he calls me Ma?

    Alec : I had. What does he call me, I wonder?

    Maire : Just 'himself'. I think he knows that you wouldn't want him to call you Alec.

    Alec : If he must.

  • Maire : You hardly talk to him.

    Alec : Ach... I try. He hardly says a word.

    Maire : You have to show him that you want him.

    Alec : I feed him, put clothes on his back, share my house with him. I can't help not having feelings for him the way you do.

  • Tomás : A seal!

    Alec : Aye. The mothers go fishing and leave the wee ones on the shore. Sometimes they don't come back.

  • Maire : Nothing wrong with a bit of colour, is there?

    Alec : Not as long as it's on you.
