Total Film - - Big Screen -

Set dur­ing Ire­land’s 1840s Great Famine, Lance Daly’s brood­ing western stars James Frecheville as Martin, an Ir­ish Ranger who deserts the Bri­tish army af­ter find­ing his fam­ily bru­talised by Bri­tish colo­nial rule. Although his for­mer com­rade (Hugo Weav­ing) is sent to track him down, this isn’t ex­actly High Noon; Daly’s aes­thet­ics and pac­ing take some get­ting used to, but it’s hard to fault the am­bi­tion. James Mot­tram
