More like a lament,
This review is from: A Song For A Raggy Boy [DVD] (DVD)
A powerful and at times very harrowing movie that shows the injustices and sadistic practices that took place under the veil of the Roman Catholic church in 1930`s Ireland. Aidan Quinn is superb as the lay teacher who tries to make life better for the boys who reside at St Jude`s Reformatory School but he`s up against Brother John ( Ian Glen )and Brother Mac ( Marc Warren ) who have their own ideas about discipline. Punchy and poignant and well worth watching.
