A historical biopic of Irish revolutionary Michail Collins, the man who led the IRA against the United Kingdom in the Angle-Irish War (1912-21), helped negotiate the creation of the Irish Free State (1922), and led the National Army during the Irish Civil War (1922-23).
"Michael Collins paints a heroic picture of the Irish Republican Army's inspired strategist and military leader, who fought the British Empire to a standstill and invented the techniques of urban guerrilla warfare that shaped revolutionary struggles all over the world."
