A film by Neil Jordan
The Troubles provide the backdrop for a study of sexual intrigue in this landmark British drama from director Neil Jordan (Michael Collins, Interview with the Vampire) and producer Stephen Woolley (Carol).
When British soldier Jody (Forest Whitaker) is kidnapped by the IRA, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with his captor, Fergus (Stephen Rea). When the abduction goes awry, Fergus leaves for London where he becomes embroiled in a curious love triangle with Dil (Jaye Davidson), Jody's beautiful girlfriend.
Full of suspense, mystery and intrigue, this Academy Award-winning thriller challenged mainstream sexual sterotypes and remains a powerful and poignant exploration of gender and identity.
