The Wind that Shakes the Barley

The Wind that Shakes the Barley (2006)
The film recounts the dramatic story of two brothers and their comrades who join the Irish freedom fighters struggle to win Ireland’s independence from Great Britain in the early 20th century. The British treaty with the Irish is a short-lived victory as the freedom fighters’ disagreement over the terms of the treaty splits the new found country into civil war. Nominated for several British Independent Film Awards, the film provides an understanding view of what drove some Irish to continue the fight as members of the IRA.
