Five Minutes of Heaven, DVD


Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt star in this drama set against the backdrop of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Having served 12 years in prison for the cold-blooded murder of a Catholic teenager when he himself was only 17, Alistair (Liam Neeson) now assuages his guilt by immersing himself in conflict resolution projects.

Joe Griffin (James Nesbitt), the younger brother of the murder victim - and a witness to the crime - is now married with two daughters.

Both men may appear to have moved on with their lives, but they remain emotionally scarred by the shocking events that took place 33 years earlier - and must now face up to them as they meet again for the first time.
