|Neil Jordan Director||previously directed Interview with the Vampire|
The movie is a dramatised look at the Irish war of independence against the British concentrating on the divide between the rebels during the war. Jordan truly represents the period well showing the tension between the idealistic republicans and their unrealistic expectations. The movie, while showing the period, isn't historically accurate.
