Sharing Films: In the name of the father

Ok, so it’s 8 a.m. in the morning and I’m writing this post instead of start studying… yep it’s all about priorities, you know?

In early November Mr. funny and I visited Dublin with my friend Rosa. There we found that Irish history is very sad, it’s been a history marked by famine and war. That was something we didn’t know, we knew little recent history, small things about terrorism and not so much more.
But by visiting the city we found that Irish people have been suffering for hundred of years, and that’s something no one told us!
One day we visited a prison called Kilmainham Gaol, the guide talked about some films that were recorded there, and we made a list because some of them were about passages of Irish history. We started with this one, and seriously, we loved it. (Be aware! This is not a funny film, it’s one of those films you enjoy but you feel a bit sad at the end.)

Based on a true story, this film tells about a father and a son that are imprisoned as alleged terrorists after an IRA atack in London, but I prefer not to tell you more, it’s better to watch the movie.
Well, make me know if you watch it and your opinions!

Smile sweeties! xo
