25th anniversary of The Crying Game

The current issue of OUT Magazine has a great article “Pride on the Screen” which looks back at queer cinema. One of the movies featured – a movie that was definitely ahead of its time – is the Oscar winning, The Crying Game.

For many Millennials this may not be a movie they are familiar with since it was released 25 years ago in 1992. It may seem somewhat dated now, after all the idea of terrorism rarely brings to mind Ireland and England, Catholic and Protestant, but 25 years ago the conflict was still very much a reality and more often than not what came to mind when one talked of bombings and terrorism.
