More Info

Written and directed by Neil Jordan, this important film allows us an insight into the minds of people involved in the dark days of the ‘Troubles’ in Northern Ireland. With complex themes of sexuality, race, gender and perhaps, above all, nationality, we are invited to consider the behaviour of a people at war with each other as well as themselves. Members of the IRA capture an English soldier (note how he has to be described as ‘English’) and use him as a bargaining chip. Into this dark and charged atmosphere transgender issues arrive, making the plot even more complex. Stars Stephen Rea as Fergus and Forest Whitaker as Jody. Doors and bar open at 6.15pm. Film starts at 7pm.
