Film - RYAN'S DAUGHTER
Ryan's Daughter is a 1970 film directed by David Lean. The film, set in 1916, tells the story of a married Irish woman who has an affair with a British officer during WW I, despite opposition from her nationalist neighbours.
The film has been criticized for its perceived depiction of the Irish proletariat as uncivilized compared with the occupying British forces and the Catholic Church.
