In the Land of Saints and Sinners

This engrossing historical drama unfolds in Ireland during the 1970s. Yearning to leave his dark past behind, Finbar attempts to lead a quiet life in the remote coastal town of Glencolmcille, far from the political upheaval that is raging across the country. His idyllic world changes when a group of terrorists arrive and Finbar must choose between exposing his secret identity or defending his friends and neighbours.

This white-knuckle thriller set against the backdrop of The Troubles showcases a brilliant cast including Liam Neeson, Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin BFF22), Jack Gleeson (perhaps best known as King Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones) and the always endearing Ciarán Hinds.

Investigating the concept of cultural identity and personal legacy, In the Land of Saints and Sinners fuses a rousing script, swelling music score, dynamic cinematography and an all-star cast to deliver a suspenseful tale that will grip you from start to finish.
