The Crying Game

The Crying Game

IRA enforcer Fergus (Jordan regular Stephen Rea) finds himself involved in the abortive kidnapping of a British soldier which ends in his accidental death. Seeking out the dead man’s girlfriend in London whilst hiding out from his former comrades he finds himself drawn into an elaborate web of sexual and political intrigue, where violence is the only result. A flop in Britain due to its sympathetic portrayal of the IRA in the midst of a bombing campaign, it became a huge American hit due to its still famous ‘surprise reveal’ moment.
