A good movie and cheapest at the mo.
Inspired by Martin McGartland's shocking real life story, Martin is a young lad from West Belfast in teh late 1980s who is recruited by the British polics to spy on the IRA. He works his way up the ranks as a volunteer for the IRA whilst feeding information to his British handler and saves lives in the process; until one day he is exposed, captured and tortured to within an inch of his life. He escapes dramatically by throwing himself from a tower block window and is still in hiding today.
Directed by Kari Skogland (LIBERTY STANDS STILL) and adapted from the autobiography of Martin McGartland, FIFTY DEAD MEN WALKING is the electrifying tale of a British secret services agent based in Northern Ireland during the late 80s.
