Tom Collins

Synopsis

The action is set in County Cork, in Southern Ireland in 1920. The film is a portrait of the end of an era, and the demise of a class and a way of life that have survived for centuries. It is also a psychological drama depicting the opposing emotions of love and the longing for freedom; of the lure of complacency and the hunger for change; of 'old ways' against the terrifying prospect of independence, both political and spiritual; above all, it is a portrait of a young woman's coming of age in a brutalised time and place.
