Celebrate in style.

St. Patrick's Day is, of course, the annual worldwide celebration of Irish culture and, well, a damn good excuse to wear that green shirt you haven't worn all year while imbibing many an alcoholic beverage.

It's also a perfect opportunity to remind yourself of Ireland's rich film culture, which while not nearly as prolific as the Hollywood sausage factory, has nevertheless enjoyed tremendous success over the decades.

While much of your day may be spent at a pub or five, try to find some time over the festive period to honour Ireland by soaking in a few of these glorious Irish or Irish-themed movies, from cult comedies to Best Picture-winning blockbusters.
