Surrounded by the conflict in Northern Ireland, Kathleen Quigley has managed to stay clear of it, devoting herself to her three children. Yet in a single moment, the war claims her as one of its living victims. Kathleen is caught in an inescapable political crossfire when her son, actively involved with the IRA, is jailed by the British. Academy Award winner* Helen Mirren (The Queen) portrays Kathleen in a powerful drama of courage and love from the makers of In the Name of the Father. Kathleen's sudden involvement in the conflict brings her into contact with Annie (Fionnula Flanagan), the mother of another imprisoned youth. Together, the two women form an intense bond as they confront a shattering dilemma: honor their sons' belief or intervene to save their lives.

If you are into political, humanitarian or real life films, this film is for you.
of two prisoners. One is an IRA sympathizer whose other son had been shot dead by the British. The other is a teacher who doesn't believe in violence & is opposed to the IRA. These two mothers are drawn together by fate & a friendship is made. The patriotism & loyalty of the prisoners is enviable & the suffering they endured at the hands of the British is more than most could withstand. Freedom is not free and it costs dearly. One could compare the Republican's fight to our own American Revolution. We fought the English for 8 long years to be free. The British called George Washington a terrorist, too. Not much has changed. The two mothers have to decide whether or not to take their sons off of the hunger strike & that is their moral dilemma. Is anything worth dying for? That's the ultimate question. I highly recommend this film. It's a memorable film and tells a story that must never be forgotten.
On a side note, the soundtrack is as good as the movie.
A powerful movie, as it should be! A brilliant movie! A must see!
