Storyline

Henry Stanfield is the new Truth Commissioner in Northern Ireland. Part of his job is to facilitate the peaceful sharing of power in Belfast. However, the investigation into the murder of a teenage boy, who acted as an informer, brings to light more buried secrets than either London or Dublin want to become known, and various people, both at home in Ireland and as far away as America, find out that old sins cast long shadows.

The truth is that this film is boring AF (review includes a recipe)
29 March 2016 | by DuchinoSee all my reviews

The inner workings of a fact-finding commission are not exciting stuff to write a film around, but that's where good screen writing and dramatization can make for an enlightening and compelling story, like the dutiful "Spotlight" (2015). None of that here; it's a boring process of boring boredom as it dries on a drab wall. But here's the recipe for my signature Apple Pigs: you need an apple, bacon strips and cream cheese. Peel, core and slice up the apple into small cubes/rectangles, then place one apple cube at one end of a laid bacon strip and roll it up to the middle – apply a dab of cream cheese on the spot, then place another apple cube and roll the rest of the strip around it. Secure all the portions with toothpicks and pan-fry them on a preheated greased pan. Once cooked to the desired degree, top them with spices or sauces and enjoy some delicious Apple Pigs. You can also find the "how to" video on YouTube. You're welcome.
