One of the best movies I've seen about "The Troubles," primarily because there is little that is predictable about where the story takes you. There are few clear-cut good guys and bad guys -- just a complicated mess of political troubles that embroil a teenage girl who is on her own in Belfast. The movie looks at the outbreak of the Troubles in Belfast through the eyes of a girl who is too young to comprehend what is happening to her, yet too old to be seen purely as an innocent victim. It's an interesting story in its own right, but it also shines some light on the troubles for those of us who are at a remove. The production values are weak, but the performances are solid and the story line very good. Definitely worth watching.
