I am looking forward to seeing this film in the theater. Looks like a limited release in the United States right now.

From the website:

It's 1847 and Ireland is in the grips of the Great Famine that has ravaged the country for two long years. Feeney, a hardened Irish Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, abandons his post to return home and re-unite with his estranged family. He's seen more that his share of horrors but nothing prepares him for the famine's hopeless destruction of his homeland. He discovers his mother starved to death and his brother hanged by the brutal hand of the English. With little else to live for, he sets on a destructive path to avenge his family, systematically working his way up the political and social hierarchy of 19th Century Ireland. Hannah, an ageing British soldier and famed tracker of deserters, is sent to stop Feeney before he can further stoke the fires of revolution. But Hannah and Feeney are old army comrades with a mutual respect forged by their times fighting together. Personal bonds and shifting allegiances cause both men to question their motives, as they are tested to the limit by the hellish landscape of the Great Hunger.

I would love to see that movie if and when it comes to my area. Both my late wife and I have ancestors who left Ireland about this time. While I do not have much information about them, I feel pretty sure that they left because of the famine portrayed in the movie Black 47.

Fyi, just checked and it's available to rent (30 days for 6.99) on Amazon Prime. Not available yet on Netflix. Watched the trailer.....looks pretty raw and intense, my kind of movie.
