The Wind That Shakes The Barley

Ken Loach takes on the Irish-English conflict through a story of two brothers who wind up on differing sides of a philosophical divide after joining in with the Irish rebellion of 1920. Cillian Murphy and Padraic Delaney convincingly take the leads in this sincere and engaging attempt to explore the complexities of an age-old political Rubik's cube with no easy answers...Though naturally the Brits are the bad guys. Winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes 2006.
