At last a wider audience can see this wonderful film
18 October 1999 | by (DERRY, N. IRELAND) – See all my reviews

I thought that this picture had vanished from sight when it got an unexpected but fairly wide release in Northern Ireland. I am glad that a much bigger audience can now see it as it is a very honest and thought provoking look at the power held by the church in rural Ireland in the 1950.s, a period with which I can identify.Although it includes a who's who of the Irish acting fraternity, they all put in some magnificent performances. The picture is a study in control, and how the controller will respond if anyone dares to challenge their authority.Liam Cunningham is very believable as the Catholic husband torn between the love for his Protestant wife ( Orla Brady ) and the demands placed on him by the parish priest for his two girls to be brought up as Catholics. Based on a true and well publicised incident in Co.Wexford, forces us to confront the bigotry which blind faith can lead us all to.I recommend this picture to anyone who is out there, go and see it.
