The Movie: Alan J. Pakula’s final film sees Brad Pitt trying out an Irish accent as Frankie, the son of a Republican sympathiser who was shot to death when Frankie was just a child. Twenty years later, Frankie is a member of the Provisional IRA and running for his life. He runs all the way to New York, where he is put up in the house of police officer Tom O'Meara (Harrison Ford). Though it has its critics, The Devil’s Own is a solid thriller featuring a great performance by Pitt.
