Butcher Boy, The

1962 - The Cuban Missile Crisis casts a shadow over the world. But if Earth explodes into a billion pieces, Francie won't be surprised one bit. It's just like grownups to do something like that.

Funny, chilling and full of visual flair, The Butcher Boy, the tale of how Irish lad Francie copes with cruel fate and a dysfunctional homelife, "is Neil Jordan's best movie yet!" (Entertainment Weekly). The Academy-Award winning director of The Crying Game and Interview With The Vampire casts Stephen Rea, Fiona Shaw and Sinead O'Connor as adults inhabiting Francie's real or imagined worlds. And newcomer Eamonn Owens gives "a spectacular, amazing performance that will take your breathe away" (Rex Reed).
