The boxer

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

Academy Award-winner Daniel Day-Lewis and Academy Award-nominee Emily Watson are star-crossed lovers torn between unquestioning loyalty to the ties of tradition and the passion they share in one of the year's most critically acclaimed films from Academy Award-nominee, director Jim Sheridan.

When Danny Flynn (Daniel Day-Lewis) returns to his Belfast neighbourhood after 14 years in prison, all he wants is to find peace, resume his career, and reclaim the love of the woman who has remained etched in his mind. As they slowly embrace the possibilities of renewed romance, they realise cultural taboos stand in the way and fighting for love could cost them their lives.
