This a beautifully done drama about a difficult subject. The point of view taken in the film is the prisoner who must pick the names of replacements for hunger strike. It was a difficult task to take this subject and make it watchable, but I think they were successful in doing so. Done with dignity, it shows the humanity and even the humor of those involved. Brendan Mackey was great as Seamus. For anyone interested in Irish history or in Irish films in general, you really can't go wrong the purchase. There is some nudity, but all is necessary and none is sexual in nature. One of the best DVD purchases I have made.
