by DECLAN GORMAN
based on FRANK O’CONNOR’S biography of Michael Collins
Frank O’Connor (Gerard Adlum) brings to life the mythical hero Michael Collins (Cillian Ó Gairbhí), as he graduates from masterminding daredevil raids, prison breaks and espionage in the War of Independence to commanding the army of a newly-formed but bitterly divided state. As a timid youth, O’Connor had fought against Collins in the Civil War. So why does he divert from a glittering literary career just a few years later to write a book in praise of his dead enemy?
Contains strong language and simulated gunfire.
Not recommended for children under 13 years.
