The symbolism is thrashed just a little hard at times, but on the whole it's a most impressive debut from O'Connor, strongly acted all round.

Cal tells a story that has been told many times before, but tells it quietly and powerfully about a particular time and place: Northern Ireland in the 1980s.

A taut, compelling film about the tension, distrust and senseless violence in contemporary Ireland.

Miss Mirren, through a reserve that disappears layer by layer, makes Marcella a woman of unexpected substance and generosity, one who is no more comfortable with the pain and paradoxes of Northern Ireland than Cal is himself.

[A] trite, weepy, rather contrived tale -- you feel that every extra who passes in the street has a more involving, authentic story to tell.
