Storyline

Two young punks, Reena and Jessop, meet on the day the pope comes to Dublin in 1979. Their unholy alliance leads to bed and the formation of The Dead Patriots, a punk band. Three years later, they have become a big band in a small town. The offer of a unique record deal in London increases tensions that had already started to grow within the group.

Not Quite 'The Commitments', but well worth a look anyway.
26 May 1999 | by LentboySee all my reviews

This has to be one of my favourite films of this year(1999), and one of the best independent films ever made in Ireland. It features highly commendable performances, most notably from Barry Comerford's portrayal of the band's bass player, Joe. It is certainly not as funny as the Commitments and anyone expecting a punk commitments will be sorely disappointed, but if you are looking for an energetic anarchic piece of comedy/drama then I reckon that you should see this film.
