Better than "A few good men", this court room drama, based on true events is gripping and clever. Pearse was actually executed for his part in the 1916 rebellion (that is history, not a spoiler!!) but this movie is a what would have happened if there had been a court case. The acting is brilliant especially the lead Tom Lawlor playing Pearse. This should have been a mini series with all the leaders going to trial. You come away from this movie feeling a great injustice was done. I challenge anyone (whether Irish or not) to come away not feeling emotionally touched. Highly recommended.
