Emma Bolger Life

In America is a 2002 road drama film directed by Jim Sheridan.

The semi-autobiographical screenplay by Sheridan and his daughters, Naomi and Kirsten, focuses on an immigrant Irish family's struggle to start a new life in New York City, as seen through the eyes of the elder daughter. The film was an Irish, American, and British co-production, and was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Original Screenplay for the Sheridans, Best Actress for Samantha Morton, and Best Supporting Actor for Djimon Hounsou.


Emma Bolger Career


Bolger made her debut in Jim Sheridan's autobiographical film In America, where she costarred with her older sister Sarah at the age of 7. Emma, who had already been accepted for a role in the film, begged Jim Sheridan to take a look at her sister. She portrayed Ariel, the mischievous daughter of poor Irish immigrants who lived in New York City in the 1980s.

Emma was named a Young Artist Award for Best Performance in a Feature Film for her role in the film – Young Actress Age Ten or Younger. She received the Iowa Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actress. She has been nominated for Chicago Film Critics Association Awards for Best Young Actress, Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards for Best Young Actress, Gold Derby Film Awards for Best Young Actress, and Other Honors for Actress in a Support Role, Drama, and others. Laura Weinert wrote that "Emma Bolger brings a startling freshness and a lack of self-consciousness" and was also nominated for the Outstanding Achievement by a Cast in a Motion Picture. We are constantly amazed by her appearance: she is never cloying, never too cute for the film's own good."

She appeared in the 2005 film Heidi, based on a classic children's tale, alongside Max Von Sydow as Grandfather and Diana Rigg as Grandma. Bolger played Heidi, a young orphanage in the Swiss Alps who was rejected by a cruel aunt and sent from the city to live with her grandfather. Bolger went to an audition in London and learned a few days later that she had been chosen to be in the film. During the film's shooting, she was joined by her mother, Muriel, and a Welsh tutor. In the Common Sense Media's review, Andrea Beach said, "Emma Bolger is interacting, and her appearance is commendable for someone so young." Stella Papamichael's BBC review called her results "serious."

She appeared in Colin Farrell's crime film Intermission.

Bolger, although her sister and co-star Sarah had a fruitful acting career, gave up acting in favour of academic pursuits.
