Synopsis:
On 30th January 1972, British soldiers shot dead 13 unarmed civilians taking part in an anti-internment civil rights march in Derry, Northern Ireland. This event became known as Bloody Sunday, and was a major turning point in the history of the modern Irish troubles, catapulting the conflict into a civil war, driving many young men into the IRA and fueling a 25 year cycle of violence. The film centers around Ivan Cooper (James Nesbitt), who organised the civil rights march, and lived through the horror of the day..

Fantastic political drama - Bloody Sunday review by JD

Spoiler Alert
11/07/2015

From the perspective of the portrayal of a moment in Northern Irish history that accelerated it towards trouble, this is brilliant and spellbinding. Every point of view is beautifully explored and a very balanced account is given. It is more likely in my opinion to be closer to the truth than the subsequent cover up type "enquiries" so beloved of corrupt modern politicians. Where it is less good in my opinion is as a drama. There are romantic plots which are just so pointless and overshadowed as to be irritating, character build up to engage sympathy and involvement is inadequate and some of the acting of the minor characters is poor. The part of the march from which the film gets its name is however gripping and moving and will touch the hearts of catholics and protestants alike.
