The Crying Game

1992 / 112min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: NEIL JORDAN

CAST: STEPHEN RAE, FOREST WHITAKER, JAYE DAVIDSON, MIRANDA RICHARDSON

Neil Jordan’s drama/thriller became an international phenomenon because of a much-discussed plot twist, but what is truly remarkable about the film is how real, grounded, and wholly unhysterical it is in handling the very touchy issues of race and sex which swirl around its story of IRA skullduggery during the Irish Troubles, as Fergus (Stephen Rea) falls in love with the transgender partner (Jaye Davidson) of his former captive (Forest Whitaker).
