'A Terrible Beauty' is a unique film that offers a fresh approach to the 1916 Rising in Dublin. It tells the little-known stories of the ordinary Irish Volunteer, British soldier and civilian caught up in the fighting. It is centered on two linked events during that Easter week, the battles of Mount Street Bridge and North King Street, culminating in the massacre of fifteen innocent young men and boys.
