The first film selected by Filmhouse's latest House Guest programmer Jo Clifford is Neil Jordan's 1992 thriller The Crying Game.
When British soldier Jody (Forest Whitaker) is captured by the Irish Republican Army, he forms an unexpected bond with his reticent captor Fergus (Stephen Rea). Resigned to his fate, Jody asks Fergus to check on his partner Dil (Jaye Davidson) if he is executed. Exiled to London after tragedy strikes, Fergus assumes a new identity and tracks down Dil.
Their unlikely relationship is weighed down by the secrets they keep — they are two outcasts railing against a hostile world. This psychological thriller earned a Best Screenplay Oscar® for director Neil Jordan.
