Pretty good flick about the Irish in 1920's..

Also paints an interesting picture of occupation forces, the sad part is its a very true picture of EVERY occupation force that ever was, is, and ever will be..

I'm man enough to admit there was a scene or two that got me eyes damp..

Never heard of it but I'll have to look it up. There's so much crap in movies and television that I'm a pushover for a well done movie.

Its about the Irish Civil War & the struggle for independence...
There's a typical amount of ' war movie' violence, and a wee small bit of cursing.

The Irish struggle for freedom has always been a great backdrop for movies.

I'm a sucker for Cillian Murphy movies. This one's excellent.
