If Northern Ireland was a Hollywood movie…?

It’s been a pretty depressing couple of weeks all told. Flags, riots, official confirmation of state involvement in the murder of solicitor Pat Finucane. So, let me try and lift the mood, by asking a completely fatuous makey upey question:

  • If Hollywood was to make a Movie about Northern Ireland right now, what would be the plot? And, here’s the controversial bit: who would you cast as the heros and villans?

Only rule, you are not allow to criticise each other’s plots or casting!
