Greystones Film Club: THE LONELY BATTLE OF THOMAS REID

THE LONELY BATTLE OF THOMAS REID (Ireland/12A/76mins) 

It’s been described as one of the most unique pieces of cinema of the past year, and this powerful documentary charting a Leixlip loner’s battle to save his 100-year old farm from big business. 

There’s nothing as compelling – and strange – as real life, of course, and Reid’s stubborn determination as he locks horns with the Industrial Development Authority reflects not only the defiance of one man against a giant, corporate bully, but it also highlights the struggle for Ireland’s small farmer to survive in these technologically-driven times. 

Just remember to bring your hankies. And your pitchforks.

 

There will be a 20-minute Q&A after the film with producer Luke McManus.
