About The General

Family man. Psychopath. Folk hero. Gangster. Martin Cahill was all this and more. For twenty years he captured the imagination of the public while eluding capture by the police. Thumbing his nose at authority, Cahill wound up stealing over $60 million until the IRA decided to put him out of business once and for all. Starring Brendan Gleeson (Braveheart) and OscarĀ®-winner Jon Voight (Best Actor, Coming Home, 1978), THE GENERAL is the critically acclaimed new masterpiece from legendary director John Boorman (Deliverance, Hope and Glory, Excalibur, Emerald Forest).
