“Shadow Dancer”

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

James Marsh talks about directing “Shadow Dancer,” which stars Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough. The film is set in 1993 and follows a single mother living in Belfast with her mother and hardliner IRA brothers. When she is arrested for her part in an aborted IRA bomb plot in London, an MI5 officer offers her a choice: lose everything and go to prison or return to Belfast to spy on her own family. “Shadow Dancer” opens May 31 at the Landmark Sunshine, and will be available on iTunes and On Demand in June.

Does the actress who maintains "During The Troubles nobody had a phone" also believe that that Irish had pigs in the parlor?

I'm glad Ms. Riseborough mentioned that so-called rubber bullets can do severe damage. They're actually metal bullets that are only coated w/rubber; calling them "rubber bullets" sounds as if they're made entirely of rubber & makes them sound much too benign.
