Telling the story of the Irish War for Independence, from the Irish point of view, Loach and Scottish screenwriter Paul Laverty produce a solid, no-nonsense piece of drama, impressively acted by professionals and non-professionals alike. Focusing on the human costs of a grand injustice, it serves as a rallying cry for us to learn from past mistakes, drawing parallels to the present conflict in Iraq.
