The Crying Game
1992
*****
Director: Neil Jordan
Cast: Steven Rea, Jaye Davidson, Forest Whitaker, Miranda Richardson

Neil Jordan’s weird and wonderful film takes a left turn each time you think you know where it’s heading. It starts as a political drama, as the IRA hold a British soldier captive, and ends as an unusual love story. Jordan’s Oscar winning screenplay is peppered with offbeat humour. Steven Rea and Jaye Davidson give memorable performances.
