Great Acting.
10 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw the film recently for the first time on Ireland's TV3. It is a harrowing tale of hunger striking in a Women's prison during Northern Ireland's Troubles. But it is also a tale of friendship between a young joyrider (played with great aplomb by Áine Quinn) and the leader of the Republican prisoners (played with quiet dignity by Orla Brady). But what keeps the film going at a great pace is the acting who have obviously responded to director, Maeve Murphy's subtle direction. And although it may be a serious theme the dialogue is really funny. Well worth a watch. Look out for it - it will keep getting shown.
