Quotes

[First Lines]
Hannah: No excuse tonight. It was your accomplices.
Red: I have no accomplices.
Hannah: Oh. I found the guns. If you don't cooperate, they'll charge you with treason. And I'm not nterested in seeing you punished unnecessarily. I sympathise with the Young Irelanders.
Red: No, you don't. You're a puppet of the crown.
Hannah: A subject. Loyal subject.
Red: So feck off back home to England then.
Hannah: I prefer it here, Mr McCormack, I find it challenging. There is no place harder to get someone to tell the truth.
Red: Or does England ...

Beautiful shot historical epic.
1 October 2018 | by paulmacqueen70See all my reviews

What an amazing piece of film making on show here. Its essentially a Western set to the back drop of The Irish Potato famine. That this period has never really been depicted before really is sad,as its a time that should never be forgotten. Both the leads in James Frecheville as Feeney,and Hugo Weaving as Hannah are simply masterful. Whilst we may be used to Weaving putting in such a great roll Frecheville is a relative newcomer.But judging from the intensity that he brings to this part he will be around for a long time. This should be required viewing to anybody who studies English history. Bravo.
