Rebellion is a five part serial drama about the birth of modern Ireland. The story is told from the perspectives of a group of fictional characters who live through the political events of the 1916 Easter Rising.
Jaelynne Wallace Ruane,
The actual premise of the story, showing the Mayflower settlers from a different perspective, was very good, acting was great and nice to see proper weapons being used correctly. However one thing that really took away from the whole thing was the women actors looked as if they had just visited a beauty parlour, with their carefully coiffured hair and immaculately plucked eyebrows going very well with their flawless skin. Living in conditions like that you very quickly get 'the grime' , a dirtiness that covers you and takes many hot baths and showers to get rid of. Your hair grows in tangled messes and your skin erupts in a whole selection of interesting and persistent blemishes. And as for one of the women wearing a crocheted shawl, really? She would be wearing animal skins or if really lucky an old blanket.
