Peter O'Toole, Peter Ustinov and Cyril Cusack star in this saga of 1900s Dublin life, adapted from the novels of James Plunkett. Jim Larkin (O'Toole) arrives in Dublin during one of its most turbulent eras to organise the unions and get a fair deal for the working man in a time of widespread poverty and destitution. Larkin, nicknamed 'Big Jim', founded the Worker's Union of Ireland and became best-known for his role in the Dublin Lockout of 1913 after employees were threatened with losing their jobs if they refused to sign a pledge not to join a union or engage in any sympathetic strikes.

I grew up in Dublin the forties/Fifties and I had no problem relating to the Dublin of the earlier period in this excellent presentation of the book of the same title.
The story unfurls with the arival in Kingstown now re-named Dun Laoghaire of King Edward V11 and follows the lives of a dozen or so characters. These range from the well-to-do Bradshaws to their servants Miss Gillchrist(who experienced the Great Famine of the 1840's and courted a young Fenian)to her young apprentice Mary who loses her position through 'company keeping' for which she is cruelly dismissed! The story follows Mary and Fitz, her trade unioin activist husband as they settle in to a troubled life in the tenements of Dublin.
Written about Dublin just a few years after Joyce's Bloomsday, the city's streets and bridges are recaptured as they play host to the poverty, community spirit and working class struggles of the period. The conflicting roles of the Catholic Church are disclosed through the characters of the three priests in the inner city St. Bridget's parish. The parish boilerman, Rashers and his faithful canine companion, Rusty occupy the basement of Mary and Fitz's tenement, which has the grandiose title of Chandler Court.
Rashers earns the title of 'Bard of the Revolution' from the romantic Pat Bannister for his compositions in support of the Larkinites.Read more ›
A very poignant series which superbly encapsulates the life and politics of Dublin in the years before the Rising. It's not often that a production based on a book is as good as this.
The 3 stars are due to this film not having subtitles for the deaf, so I could not follow the dialogue, so, if like me, you need the subtitles then do not waste your money on this item.
There is no indication on the item description that it lacks subtitles...again!!!!!.
