What is the Storyline of "Crossmaglen":
Based on his novel The Shamrock Boy Stuart White captures the drama, pain, betrayal and loss during the dark days of the troubles in Northern Ireland.
Set in the early 1980s Dermot McGarvey (Tony Curran - Gladiator, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Pearl Harbor, Miami Vice), the Irish Republican Armys premiere assassin sets out with two fellow soldiers to run a raid on British troops in a small village in the North of Ireland. The misfire of his rifle during the ensuing attack takes the life of innocent civilians and costs the life of Dermots friend and comrade Seamus.
The deaths of innocent bystanders result in the nationwide uproar of both British and Irish citizens. Add to this the grief of British Officer Joe Biddle (Ray Winstone - The Departed), as he learns that his son David has also been killed in the attack. Joe requests and is granted a special assignment, to hunt down and capture Dermot McGarvey.
Betrayed by friends and family, Dermot is on the run and fate reunites him with a love from the past, Kathy Monahan (Claire Forlani Meet Joe Black, Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius) the daughter of Irish/American Senator Patrick Monahan (Michael Gambon - Harry Potter, The Kings Speech). As Kathy and Dermot's relationship develops, she attempts to garner his freedom using her fathers political influence.
A fugitive from friend, foe and family, Dermot and Kathy race across Ireland, followed closely behind by the IRA, Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler's List), the British and his younger sister Nulla (Thora Birch American Beauty).
Starring Oscar© winner Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot, A Time to Kill, Veronica Guerin) as Aunt Kathleen, and Fionnula Flanagan as Mam, (Transamerica, Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood) Crossmaglen brings to light the vicious cycle of hatred, war and revenge; and in a surprising twist - redemption.
