Dolores O'Riordan's beautiful 'Angela's Song' features in the credits
The late Dolores O’Riordan has a song in Netflix’s ‘Angela’s Christmas,’ an Irish movie based off of a children's story by Frank McCourt.
Featured in the credits of the Netflix short film, 'Angela's Song' is a beautiful tune by the former Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan, who tragically passed away in January in London.
“Stay with me, forget the cold streets of Limerick City,” sings O’Riordan, a native of Limerick herself, in the song.
'Angela's Christmas' is a 30-minute long movie that tells the story of a young girl in Limerick on Christmas Eve in 1914.
Director and co-writer Damien O’Connor said: “Initially, it was a little daunting to turn the book into the film, but we had Frank’s widow Ellen McCourt on hand to guide us which was amazing if we strayed too far from Frank’s voice when writing the dialogue she would let us know.”
The film features the voices of Ruth Negga (Love/Hate, Loving), Lucy O’Connell (Song of the Sea), and Frank McCourt’s brother Malachy.
