Info:

Closing the Ring is a film set in Branagan, Michigan and Belfast, Northern Ireland and is by Richard Attenborough. The film will be released by The Works Distribution throughout the UK and Ireland On December 28th 2007. The film had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, September 14, 2007. The film also received its UK premiere at the London International film festival on both October 21 and October 22 2007. The B-17 used in this movie was the Yankee Lady from the Yankee Air Force museum and flown by D. Gene Wedekemper.

Story:

The film opens with the funeral of a former WWII veteran. The man's daughter Marie (Neve Campbell) delivers the eulogy to a church full of veterans who knew and loved her father, while her mother Ethel Ann (Shirley MacLaine) is sitting out on the church porch, smoking and nursing a hangover. When Ethel Ann begins acting strangely, only her friend Jack (Christopher Plummer) seems to understand why. It quickly emerges that there is a lot Marie does not know about her mother's past and the true story of her love life. The movie flips to a time when this mother was young, lively, and optimistic (young Ethel Ann played by Mischa Barton). She is in love with a young farmer, Teddy Gordon (played by Canadian new comer Stephen Amell), who goes off to war with his best friends Jack (Gregory Smith) and Chuck (David Alpay), but not all of them make it back alive. The plot lines intertwine with the story of a young Ulsterman in Belfast who finds a ring in the wreckage of a crashed B-17 and is determined to return it to the woman who once owned it.

Info:

Closing the Ring ist ein US-amerikanisch-britisch-kanadisches Filmdrama von Richard Attenborough aus dem Jahr 2007.

Handlung:

Jimmy Reilly findet im Jahr 1991 einen Ring und sucht daraufhin die Person, der der Ring gehört. Es stellt sich heraus, dass der Ring dem Besatzungsmitglied eines im Jahr 1943 in der Nähe von Belfast abgestürzten Bombers Boeing B-17 Teddy Gordon gehörte. Gordon, Jack und Chuck warben im Jahr 1941 in Kentucky um die Gunst von Ethel Ann, die sich für Gordon entschied. Später gingen alle drei Männer in den Krieg.

Gordon starb, bat jedoch vor seinem Tod am Absturzort den damals jungen Michael Quinlan, der Ring sollte seiner in den Vereinigten Staaten lebenden Verlobten Ethel Ann überreicht werden, die einen neuen Verlobten wählen sollte. Quinlan barg den Ring nicht, so dass Ethel Ann ihn nicht bekam. Sie heiratete später Chuck und gebar die Tochter Marie. Chuck ist inzwischen verstorben.
Reilly sucht Ethel Ann, die er aufspürt. Marie erfährt über die Vergangenheit ihrer Mutter.
