I saw this movie with my parents when I was only 10. It is not an appropriate film to take a child to, as there is a graphic torture scene and a lot of violence. However, I did not have any lasting trauma, and I thought the film was incredible. Very realistic, good acting, cynical story line that looked at multiple sides of the issue of the Troubles. The movie did not paint either the IRA or the British government in a positive light. I thought the violence in the film, though graphic, was necessary to show the brutality of the situation. This was one of the most memorable movies I have ever seen. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find it on DVD. I would love to see it again as an adult.
