Irish Eye on Hollywood: 9/11 and Bobby Sands Subjects of New Streaming Documentaries

Jim Sheridan’s latest Irish movie The Secret Scripture, based on Irish writer Sebastian Barry’s novel, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, though there is no word yet on a wide release. It may not help that early reviews of The Secret Scripture have been quite negative If you can’t wait to judge The Secret Scripture yourself, Sheridan recently gave fans a little taste of something new. He directed a short film based on the story of Irish journalist Lise Hand, who was in New York on 9/11. The film is called The 11th Hour.

“I just made a little movie now about 9/11 with Salma Hayek, just a kind of movie to show that once, America was all immigrants working together, including Muslims,” Sheridan recently said.

While you’re online looking up Sheridan’s movie, also look up a recently released documentary, Bobby Sands: 66 Days. This grueling documentary takes an unsparing look at the hunger strikes that rocked the world back in 1981 and their long-lasting impact on Irish history. The documentary was released in December and should be available via streaming or DVD in early 2017. ♦
