The Irish in Film
A Complete List of Irish Films

 Title  Michael Collins
This film covers Ireland's struggle for independence from 1916 to 1922. After the disastrous Easter Rebellion against British troops, Michael Collins, an Irish nationalist leader of Sinn Fein, transformed the Irish army into guerrilla fighters, which later became the IRA. The film clearly shows the ambivalence of the nationalists, many of whom wanted independence but would accept no compromise. It was a war that was not a war, yet, Collins and his men, through perseverance, brought about a treaty with England and the establishment of the Irish Free State. Link to reviews Click picture
