Wind That Shakes the Barley
Source: Catholic News Service
Powerful war drama about two brothers (Cillian Murphy and Padraic Delaney) fighting against British forces in 1920s Ireland. Director Ken Loach, demonstrably on the side of the Irish, vividly illustrates the pitfalls of violence without casting the conflict in sectarian religious terms while espousing a socialist political philosophy that doesn't obscure the narrative's historical or moral complexity. Pervasive rough and crude language including one anti-Catholic slur, extensive wartime violence, including multiple shootings and executions, a torture scene, and an unmarried man and woman kissing briefly prior to an implied encounter. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
