Some Mother’s Son

The next step on the Completely Similar express is an examination of another film about the Troubles… Some Mother’s Son. The guys talk about this film leaving virtually NO cultural footprint at all, they discuss how the film represents the conflict from many different points of view while never fully vilifying one side or the other, the very relaxed election rules that would not be a good idea in 2023, comparisons with Hunger and the relative tame-ness of this movie and much more.

Next week: Cornetto!
