Made for TV. 

 

This film is about Bloody Sunday (January 30, 1972) from the perspective of march participant Leo Young (whose brother was killed that day).  Some reviewers thought it a bit heavy-handed, even though the Brits were obviously in the wrong.  So if you want a movie that really targets the British for criticism, or if you thought the movie Bloody Sunday was to easy on the British, take a look at this film.
