Gritty and realistic drama.
14 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film is a gritty and realistic depiction of the impact of sectarian conflict and violence in Northern Ireland on family and community life. Vengeance follows vengeance in a well-orchestrated and credible plot. Noteworthy for one of Margot Kidder's best performances.
