Movie Info

The film takes us from Padraig's isolated life in Cambridge, Massachusetts to some of the most dangerous crisis zones on Earth--from Northern Ireland to Kosovo, Nigeria to Iraq over five years--as he works a peacemaking model based on his recovery from addiction. We meet Padraig in the third act of his life in a race against time to find some kind of salvation for both the world and himself.

  • By the end of "The Peacemaker," you feel you're watching a Samuel Beckett character furiously trying to improvise himself out of the play. In the process, he's bringing the rest of us along.

  • The Peacemaker is absorbing, and O'Malley is a fascinating character.

  • The weight of the world is evident in O'Malley's dour gaze, but it's clear too, in Demo's sensitive, piercing portrait, that the endless job he's carved out for himself is his lifeblood, and its own kind of addiction.

  • The more we get to know him, the more his core motivation - is he an idealist or something else? - becomes the mystery of the film.

  • The movie is a fascinating portrait that is if anything too brief.

    Feb 8, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An intense, intimate portrait of a visionary capable of sophisticated analysis, abrupt anger, self-deprecating wit, and profound insights - all while existing at considerable remove from his fellow man.
