A dark journey into the mind of a troubled Irish boy whose obsession with maintaining his family's honor leads him to commit a gruesome murder and eventually have a nervous breakdown. Starring Stephen Rea (FearDotCom, Interview With the Vampire), Fiona Shaw (the Harry Potter movies, The Avengers), and pop-star Sinead O'Connor. Directed by Oscar-winner Neil Jordan (The End of the Affair, Interview With the Vampire). Brilliantly bold... a brutally honest exploration of a disturbed mind that is both horrific and darkly comic... an instant classic... without a doubt Neil Jordan's most startlingly original and accomplished film... -- Daily Variety
