Based on the true story that gripped Ireland in the 1990's, Property of The State tells of a disturbed young man by the name of Brendan O'Donnell. Seen through the eyes of his sister Ann Marie, piece by piece she threads together the events that ultimately lead to the harrowing murders of a young mother, her child and a local priest in the forest of East Clare, Ireland. Ann Marie lived through it all. As the loving sister of a loving brother, she became the sister of a murderer and the sister of a man described as the most evil man in Ireland. She had not committed a crime, yet many saw her guilty by association.
The UK release was cut, the distributor chose to remove bloody detail from a suicide scene in order to obtain a 15 classification. An 18 classification uncut was available. See more »
excellent, sad and heartbreaking. great movie
Amazing movie - well produced, acted, written etc. Sad story about a sad state of affairs for people with mental health issues. I was shocked that this movie was about such a recent event....watching you would think it took place a hundred years ago instead of the 1990's. Atrocious how poor the recognition of mental sickness was and is. Great movie, but sometimes painful to watch for sure.
