The British occupied Ireland for over 700 years, at the beginning of the 20th century, the Irish fought back, this culminated in the 1916 Rising and the War of Independence, the English then bullied an Irish assassin turned politician Michael Collins into signing a treaty which divided Ulster from the rest of Ireland. The treaty caused outrage up and down the country, and was quickly followed by the Civil War. 

The Wind That Shakes the Barley follows Damian O’ Donavan, a hopeful doctor, and his brother, Teddy , a hopeless rebel through the rising, War of Independence and Civil War where they go against one another.

    I tried to watch this movie but it was so rough. I started feeling sick after 20 minutes. I need to try to rewatch it.
