Circle of Friends

Set in 1950s Ireland, Benny (Minnie Driver in her first breakout Hollywood role) is a plain-looking young woman attending university in Dublin, who is reunited with three of her girlhood friends experiencing their first flush of love and relationships. Benny quickly falls for the handsome Jack (Chris O'Donnell), the university's star rugby player. The pair is drawn together but Benny's more conventionally beautiful friend Nan may come between them.
