TRUE STORY
9 May 2004 | by (Berkeley, CA) – See all my reviews

This is an amazing story of how one man, Vincent Lavery, brought children from opposing sides(Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland) of an age-old conflict together to counter the ever-present dehumanization of "the other". Lavery's organization was successful. This is a great story, one that really puts things into perspective. It is thought provoking and emotion evoking. Anybody who has been touched by violence and hatred or knows of the situation in Northern Ireland will appreciate this movie, this story and Lavery's organization. Something else to note in the story is overwhelming courage in the children to forge friendships with children of their opposing religion while family, friends and peers are working against them. The best thing about it is that it is 100% true in all aspects. I would definately recommend this movie to anyone.
