Movie Info

Citizen Lane is an innovative mix of documentary and drama that delivers a vivid and compelling portrait of Hugh Lane, one of the most fascinating and enigmatic figures in modern Irish history. A man of multiple contradictions, infuriatingly parsimonious or extraordinarily generous, a professed nationalist and a knight of the realm; a monumental snob and a fearless campaigner for access to the arts.

Critic Reviews for Citizen Lane

All Critics (6) | Fresh (6)

  • There's more than enough interesting information and inherent drama to make Lane's life worthy of a documentary. What really lifts O'Sullivan's film above the norm is how he goes about it.

  • One of the brilliant things a well-made documentary can do is distill a complex yarn into an 80-minute digestible shape, and this story is complicated.

    May 24, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • O'Sullivan's film provides a real insight into Hugh Lane's life and legacy, and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor's performance catches a fascinating, warm, arrogant but overwhelmingly generous man.

    May 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Essential viewing for anyone seeking a better understanding of [Ireland's] complex capital city.

    May 22, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Working from Mark O'Halloran's fiendishly clever script, the December Bride director and dexterous editor Mick Mahon have fashioned a project as elegant as its subject.

    May 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a format that could have come across as jarring on screen, but O'Sullivan has expertly assembled the jigsaw puzzle of Lane's life and achievements without missing a piece.
