The Wind that Shakes the Barley (II)

In an earlier post, I mentioned the new film The Wind that Shakes the Barley.  There's a bit more info on this film now here, and here.

The film was shot in Cork, where it happens Michael Collins was killed. Director Ken Loach is a member of a left wing British political party called RESPECT, which has as its hoped-for policies a number of socialist goals. In the Socialist Worker on-line, an interview with Loach appears here. With such overt political affiliations one might ask: Is this film truthful? Well, click here for a stab at the answer.
