In this ground breaking debut feature from director Yann Demange, Jack O’Connell (Skins) leads a brilliantly talented cast including Sean Harris (Prometheus) and Sam Reid (Anonymous) in a story of abandonment and conflict on the dangerous streets of Northern Ireland.
During ‘The Troubles’, a young British soldier is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, the raw recruit must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.
Testament to the universal relevance of this film are the rave reviews that have come out of Toronto and Berlin Film Festival screenings - ‘The Troubles’ have rarely been more troubling onscreen than they are here.
