The Butcher Boy


The Butcher Boy Review

Steller film that I resisted on opening, for some reason. Wish I hadn't. This homage to A Clockwork Orange follows young Francie Brady (Owens) on a path of destruction through Kennedy-era Ireland. Jordan's best work since The Crying Game, and right when I'd given up on him. Delicious.

Chop chop, Boy.
