Teenage Bri­tish squad­die Jack O’con­nell finds him­self on the run for his life af­ter be­ing ac­ci­den­tally left be­hind by his army unit dur­ing a riot in this fe­ro­ciously grip­ping thriller set in early-1970s Belfast. Lost in a maze of rat runs and back al­leys, O’con­nell has no idea who is friend or foe. With O’con­nell’s ar­rest­ing lead per­for­mance backed by strong sup­port, this is an im­pres­sive tale of ter­ror that never loses sight of the era’s sav­age trib­al­ism and murky pol­i­tics.
