CGiii Comment

Jordan won the Oscar for the writing.

A movie that (for some) had one of the biggest surprises.

It is uniquely British, uniquely Jordan - and, worthy of all the attention and praise it accrued.


The(ir) Blurb...

An unlikely kind of friendship develops between Fergus, an Irish Republican Army volunteer, and Jody, a kidnapped British soldier lured into an IRA trap by Jude, another IRA member. When the hostage-taking ends up going horribly wrong, Fergus escapes and heads to London, where he seeks out Jody's lover, a hairdresser named Dil. Fergus adopts the name "Jimmy" and gets a job as a day laborer. He also starts seeing Dil, who knows nothing about Fergus' IRA background.
