Circle of Friends (1995) short review

I like this way more for the movie that it is than for the costumes, which are very standard average-person wear.  Set in Ireland during the 1950s, it’s about a young country girl (and her two best friends) who goes to college in Dublin and learns about life and love and herself.  Really heartwarming and touching, and I love the main character — she’s a girl after my own heart.
