Movie Info

Set in 1958, this drama chronicles the raising of an Irish housewife's socio-political consciousness over a ten year period. Desiring a better life for her son, the unmarried Maureen crosses the border into Northern Ireland to live in the town of Bogside in Derry. There she marries the easy-going but traditional-minded Barry who seems to value her more for her child-bearing capability than her mind. At first she seems doomed to a life of household drudgery and dullness, but as time passes she becomes acquainted with several, strong-minded local women who open her eyes amidst the turmoil and strife of a changing Northern Ireland. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi


Critic Reviews for Bogwoman

All Critics (1)

Bullets fly and the violence gets progressively more mindless and shocking in the frenetically-paced consequences, which are littered with heavy-handed references.
