Product Description
This is a 25 question study guide for the film "Some Mother's Son" starring Hellen Mirren. It is about the H-Block hunger strikers & Bobby Sands in Northern Ireland in 1980-81. It tells the stories of two mothers, one a pacifist and the other an IRA sympathizer, who bond when their sons join the hunger strikes. Their stories weave together for a clear portrayal of the politics and tensions of the times, as well as the difficult decisions at hand. In the end it is left to the mothers to decide: save their sons' lives or honor their convictions and allow them to sacrifice their lives. An incredibly moving film that pulls no punches when it comes to conflict in Northern Ireland.
