The Wind that Shakes the Barley 22.02.13

Following on from our January screening of the 1969 Ken Loach classic Kes, we are showing another of his films, a Palme d’Or winner, made some 37 years later.

Two brothers are caught on differing sides of the battle for Irish freedon in this politically minded historical drama from veteran British filmmaker Ken Loach.  It is 1920 and Damien O’Donovan (Cillian Murphy) has recently graduated from medical school.  Damien plans to leave the small village in Ireland where he was born to take a job in London, much to the annoyance of his brother Teddy (Padraic Delaney), who is an Irish loyalist and wants to see the British stripped of their rule of his land.
