Aro Recommended Omagh


Ireland 2004, 102 minutes
Dir. Peter Travis
Genres: Drama / Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: Powerfully affecting docudrama revisits the deadliest act of terrorism in Northern Ireland history and its grievous aftermath, focusing on a victim’s family and their search for justice.

As with writer-producer Paul Greengrass’s BLOODY SUNDAY, there’s an unapologetic bias towards victim impact at the expense of an equitable investigation into both sides of the situation i.e. an emphasis on effect rather than cause. Nonetheless, this clarion call for peace in the midst of explosive anger reverberates strongly, bolstered by McSorley’s stirring performance as a distraught father turned victims’ advocate.
