But the topic is just so depressing and there's enough of that in the world right now. Why not add some laughter? The two movies below are comedies set during the Troubles.
An Everlasting Piece
Two barbers meet while cutting hair for patients at a psychiatric hospital. They become friends and because of reasons, decide to start selling toupees.
It has a cameo by Billy Connolly and one of the greatest scenes ever written about herpes.
Based on the true story of DJ Terri Hooley who opened a record shop and started a record label in Northern Ireland to support the local punk scene.
I strongly encourage you to check out either of these movies if you can. They're a reminder that even in the darkest times, we can find laughter.
(There are, of course, a myriad of depressing movies about the Troubles. Of them all, I strongly recommend Hunger about Bobby Sands and the hunger strikers in the Maze Prison.)
