If anyoone is looking for a film regarding the Irish struggles to regain their country from English rule, The Wind that Shakes the Barley is one of the best I've seen.

There are many many movies with social justice themes. Thanks for pointing these out as I have not heard of many of them, but will try to find them and watch them when I get the time.

Thank you, Nancy. I hadn't heard of all of these. Be nice to show them in schools...age appropriately, of course.
