The Wind That Shakes The Barley

synopsis


Ireland, 1920. As a wave of Republican nationalism sweeps the nation, workers across the country unite to form volunteer armies to combat the notorious 'Black and Tan' paramilitary squads sent over from Britain to quell the rebel uprising. Driven by a deep sense of duty and a love for his native Ireland, Damien (Cillian Murphy) abandons his promising career as a doctor and joins his brother, Teddy, in a dangerous and violent bid for Irish independence. A story of defiance, sacrifice, and one nation's fight for independence, Ken Loach's stirring epic won the coveted Palme d'Or Award for Best Film at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival.
