This book explores the dominant images of the Irish found in the cinemas of the United States and Britain and considers the ways in which recent Irish-made films might be said to offer a response to them. The bulk of the book offers detailed readings of a wide range of key films including The Butcher Boy (1998), Patriot Games (1993), and Angela’s Ashes (2000). It discusses the full range of Irish cinematic production from the low budget work of indigenous filmmakers like Comerford and Breathnach, to the bigger Hollywood productions like Ron Howard’s Far and Away (1992), and the ‘second’ cinema of a number of directors such as Neil Jordan and Jim Sheridan where medium-sized budgets allow for greater creative control in Ireland. Feeding into wider debates about national and cultural identity, postnational cinema, and the role of the state, this book provides a unique overview of how a relatively small film culture such as Ireland’s can live successfully in the shadow of Hollywood.
