As lottery mania grows in the U.S. with the Powerball jackpot surpassing $1.5 Billion, I feel like this is a good time to recommend everyone watch Waking Ned Devine (known outside North America as Waking Ned). It’s a British comedy set in a small Irish town where the winner of the lottery promptly dies from the shock, and his friends and neighbors attempt to claim the prize as him.

The movie is one of my all-time favorites. A recommendation: the accents are strong and over the years we’ve found it better to turn the subtitles on for first-time viewers. Waking Ned Devine is available on multiple streaming services.
