2018 ( Ireland | Luxembourg ) ( Action, Drama )
Starring: Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Stephen Rea
Director: Lance Daly
Director Lance Daly imagines Ireland in 1847 as a wet and windy wild west. There are stunning widescreen vistas, blighted villages, hardboiled outlaws and villainous landowners. Irish ranger Martin Feeney (James Frecheville) rides back into his village, plans to gather his family together and flee to America, but when he discovers that all his family are dead he vows to wreak his revenge. Hannah (Hugo Weaving) is a grizzly Army veteran turned bounty hunter keen to capture Feeney. What follows is a taut, often violent drama with a powerhouse of a cast
This is very much an Irish Braveheart, and is intense, timely and terrific with elegant cinematography, stirring soundtrack and thrilling shoot-outs.
