Our Local History
8 October 2017 | by LucaniteSee all my reviews

I attended the screening of the Black Donnelly's (2017) movie last evening in Lucan, the small village in Biddulph Township, where some of the story of The Donnelly's takes place.

The costumes, scenery and the believable cast took me back, to what I have always pictured when reading the many books about The Donnelly Family.

I felt the movie didn't take sides, standing with the Donnelly Family or the Vigilantes, but tried to portray the history ... legend ... tale ... story fairly.

A lot of information and many years were condensed into this 45 minute production and I would love to see a longer version of the movie or perhaps a mini-series.

For anyone interested in the tale of the Donnelly Family I would highly recommend the movie.
