Storyline

Northern Ireland. Soldiers, through inattention, run into a car with a woman and her young son. Two years later, a horse is stuck in the river, and the soldiers happen along, but the horse's owner is violently opposed to their help; he relents, but his hostility is obvious when his daughter invites them inside afterward to warm up.

EveryONE in This Country Must SEE IT!!!
3 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Everything in This Country Must" is a superbly done film. The direction, acting, story/writing, cinematography, action sequences/effects, music, production value all come together to deliver a remarkably engrossing and ultimately touching cinematic experience.

The story centers on a young British soldier in Northern Ireland who is involved in an accident that kills a mother and her child. Later, the same soldier helps a farmer and his daughter save their drowning horse.

The film was shot on location in Northern Ireland, the genuine locale truly enriching the story. It is masterfully directed by Gary McKendry and superbly produced by Larry Gold.

Be it short film or feature length, "Everything in This Country Must" is one of the most satisfying cinematic experiences I've had in a long time. I highly recommend this film.
