Gritty Northern Ireland Play
28 September 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

From what I remember about this, it starred (or maybe co-starred) Jake Burns, the lead singer of Belfast Punk Band "Stiff Little Fingers" and featured music by the band. My memory is a bit sketchy, but I seem to remember enjoy it.

I am pretty sure it was the tale of two young Irish girls living in Belfast. I seem to remember that it was what can be described as a Gritty drama and involved lots of moving in and out of shadowy places and in and out of pubs. This gave the perfect opportunity to feature Stiff Little Fingers playing gigs in those pubs.

For any Stiff Little Fingers fan, Burns' foray into acting was great. As for those not enlightened enough to enjoy the music - I cannot say.
