    Hate Never Forgets

    Everything in this Country Must
    USA / Ireland / England
    Set against the backdrop of British occupation of Northern Ireland in 1985, an Irish farmer struggles to save his drowning horse as his daughter looks on. The teenage girl must choose between allegiance to her Catholic father and gratitude to the British soldiers who save the family horse. This 2005 Academy Award nominated film is a moving portrait of personal loss and humiliation amid political conflict. Director Gary McKendry states, "Most stories about these conflicts are written by outsiders who try to see it as a case of right and wrong -- good and evil -- black and white. None of us are really guilty. None of us are completely innocent. Black and white becomes gray under the crushing weight of history." Based on the critically acclaimed short story by Colum McCann. Principle cast: Sam Spruell, Carly Greene and Gerry Dougherty.
