This film screened 14th February 2016.
At the end of the 19th century on a large estate on Achill Island, Agnes MacDonnell (Greta Scacchi), a tough pipe-smoking, gun-toting English landowner, meets her match in the mysterious James Lynchehaun (Daniel Craig) who persuades her to employ him as her land agent. Despite their obvious class and age differences, a passionate and dangerous affair ensues.
Stylistically, this was Black’s most ambitious work to date, with outstanding cinematography of stunning island locations by Slawomir Idziak (Three Colours Blue), a big-name cast and a tale that builds to a full-blown Gothic climax.
Showing as part of our Cathal Black Season (February 6th-14th).
