What I liked

The historical context of the Irish Troubles is clearly established at the outset, freeing the intimate details of the story to take shape. This is a family drama shaped by cultural conflict, a commentary on the nature of truth and the secrets we keep. It’s heartfelt, brutal, and riveting.

What I didn't like

It’s all there, go see it!

My overall impression

Intense and lyrical, beautifully written and skillfully performed.
