Shadow dancer


Set in 1990s Belfast, an active member of the IRA becomes an informant for MI5 in order to protect her son's welfare

this was the film i saw last night with my boyfriend and his family,if you dont know the story of the troubles in northern ireland,leave now (and where have you been living..under a rock!?) because this film is about it and boy does it do good. 
im not going to do a whole review because if its in a cinema near you and you like that sort of this,go see it.
for me this film was brilliant,i loved learning about the troubles in history but then any young person from nothern ireland probably does and why not? its apart of our heritage. 
if you think its going to be violent,its not..well not like the bourne films or anything like that,this is different,its real life as it was based on a true story,you can here the northern ireland accents.
not all of it was filmed in belfast,which in my opinion is a bit disappointing as it is a belfast film.
at the start it gets quite confusing but wait ten minutes and you will put the pieces together and really get into the film.
over all,i really do think its a great film and it does show how things where 30/40 years ago and how different things are and how lucky we are that we dont have to look over our shoulders every time we walk down the street or worry about being bombed.
