Last of the High Kings, The

The year is 1977, the place is Dublin, and the music is Thin Lizzy and Frankie, who is convinced he’s going to fail his school exams and that all his dreams will be on the scrap heap. He’s becoming increasingly obsessed with two girls, Jayne Wayne and Romy Casey, but the most powerful woman in his life is his mother, a Celtic Warrior Queen who tells her children they are descended from the High Kings of Ireland. To her, Protestants are enemies of the Irish state and the British are emissaries of the devil.
