Editorial: Big day for a little film

THE nomination of Dublin-based writer and director Michael Creagh's film for an Oscar is a dream come true. The 15-minute film features his son Oran in the lead role of The Crush, a film about a young boy's infatuation with his teacher.

It's a family affair for Michael's first movie -- which bizarrely failed to win recognition from the IFTAs here but struck a chord in Hollywood -- his brother and father also played key roles in its making.

We wish them the best of Irish luck at the ceremony on February 27.
