Ireland, UK 111m, Colour
Director: Neil Jordan; Cast: Stephen Rea, Jaye Davidson, Miranda Richardson, Forest Whitaker

crying-gameThe Crying Game is an intensely ddramatic film that explores gender, prejudice, sexuality and politics. The story begins with the kidnapping of an English soldier by the IRA and ends with an unusual relationship between one of the captors and the girlfriend of the now deceased soldier. As a matter of conscience, and in an attempt to make good on a promise to deliver a message to the soldier’s girlfriend, Rea’s character inadvertently becomes involved in a relationship that is more complicated than he or the audience imagined. Ultimately, he is left with a choice  which might cost him his life (Klaus Ming October 2009).
