Star­ring Ti­mothy Spall, Colm Meaney. Di­rec­tor Nick Hamm.

Did it re­ally hap­pen? Prob­a­bly not, but this take on an un­likely friend­ship be­tween Protes­tant fire­brand Ian Pais­ley and IRA leader Martin McGuin­ness makes for great view­ing. It tells of an en­forced car trip that the two take through the Scot­tish wilder­ness dur­ing the 2006 North­ern Ire­land peace talks at St An­drews. It has been de­rided for dis­tort­ing his­tory but it’s not alone in do­ing that. Best thing is to ac­cept the ar­ti­fice and go along for a fas­ci­nat­ing ride.
