I remembered something--that an Irish fellow complained to me that Matchpoint's villain was Irish. This was before I saw the film.

But the protagonist's being Irish is needed for the plot--someone who's something of an outsider in English society, but not so much of an outsider that he cannot marry into an upper-class family. There was nothing especially Irish about the villain--whom I sympathized with.

--- I really hate Wilkepedia, or whatever it is, and I shall express my anger shortly.
