I first saw this film shortly after its release and have been trying to obtain a digital copy for some time - thanks Amazon. Whilst there is no doubt that this film errs on the side of the Republican movement, that in of itself is not a reason to dismiss it out of hand such as the 'one star' reviewer has done, for there are always two sides and you can be sure that Mirren would not entertain the notion of starring in out-and-out IRA publicity/propaganda. Rather, this film is a deep and emotional portrayal of two fictional prisoners and their respective mothers caught up in the struggle for their occupied homeland by a British establishment steeped in hypocrisy and every bit as capable of atrocity as the enemy it seeks to defeat; one could argue that it's worse given that it lies about it. Political struggles and opinions aside, this is a very moving film when you strip it down to the relationship between a mother and her son, and the demographic comparison faced by two women from very different backgrounds confronted with the same dilemma for the same cause - it's beautifully done and compelling to watch. And while the two sons are fictional, the context most certainly is not and like it or not it's not far removed from the ugly reality of the time. As one film reviewer said "Although Protestants and Catholics have been killing each other for years in Northern Ireland, can any God who permits war between sides that both seek to worship him be a God worth dying for?" Just as Mirren says in the film when on the subject of British Army soldier's death 'He was some mothers son'

A film that manages to depict both sides of a dispute regarded as pivotal in the 'Troubles'. Extremely well acted by Helen Mirren , Aiden Gillen et al; it exposes the desperation of both sides in not being seen to lose face and winning the ongoing game of political point scoring. This film will shock the viewer but that is the whole point, it should not be missed.
