CANCELLED - Irish and Scottish Film Night (3) - The Field

For the third installment of the Irish and Scottish film nights, Lisa Marr will introduce the Irish classic, 'The Field'.


"Bull" McCabe (Richard Harris) has spent three decades tending a rented field on the bluffs by the sea in Ireland. When the wealthy widow who owns the plot decides to sell it, she holds an open auction to spite McCabe. A rich American (Tom Berenger) with visions of a factory on the site outbids him, and McCabe then schemes with his emotionally crippled son, Tadgh (Sean Bean), to hold on to the land – his only consolation in a life of loss, toil and a marriage gone sour.
