Audience Reviews for The Plough and the Stars

John Ford, showcasing his pride of his Irish heritage, made this emotional and realistically violent film about the 1916 Easter Rebellion of Irish patriots revolting against their British rulers. The film is captured brilliantly and is filled with loads of destruction and the devastating effects on the Irish people. RKO studios had another Director come in to reshoot the more political tones that Ford wanted, causing him to never make another film with the studio again. If you're a fan of John Ford and Classic films, this is one to give a spin.
