Some Mother's Son


Ireland 1996, 111 minutes
Dir. Terry George
Rating: [M] contains offensive language
Genres: Drama / Prison


Aroview: The ever-topical Northern Ireland conflict provides more inspiration for the writer of IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, here dissecting the moral dilemmas of Helen Mirren, whose son is hunger-striking in the Maze Prison and on the brink of coma-ing out. Should she support his political sacrifice or keep him alive? Wholehearted, brave-faced depiction of emotional strifes that most of us can only guess at.
