Cal

Cal

Similar to "The Crying Game," this film tells a powerful and unusual love story set against the backdrop of war-torn Northern Ireland. John Lynch ("Some Mother's Son," "Sliding Doors") is Cal, a young man on the fringes of the Irish Republican Army, who falls in love with the widow of a man he helped murder in an IRA attack (played by Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren - "The Queen," "Raising Helen"). Academy Award-winning producer David Puttnam ("Chariots of Fire," "The Killing Fields") and director Pat O'Connor ("Inventing the Abbotts," "Circle of Friends") provide stylish and thought-provoking entertainment in this nominee for the Cannes Film Festival Palm d'Or for Best Picture.
