editing is rather choppy but casting acting story are all great. i don't know if you need the disco girl insert.. in real life neither of them would be attracted to the other because they are both too beautiful... what's up with the two ladies wanting to help? shouldn't they know better to stay away from young men?! or they get robbed like that! good effort overall...

Superb drama. The tension and the conflict of the Irish and the English is global and pitiful. Well acted with high production values.
