Aired in the UK in January this year, Rebellion has just come to Netflix.USA. It is a five-part mini-series about the 1916 Easter Rising, termed the birth of modern Ireland . While we are waiting for Kevin McCann’s efforts to produce our long-awaited full-length feature film, The Rising, this could prove to be an interesting introduction from another perspective.
And while Kevin’s film chronicles the lives and efforts of the real-life heroes, this mini-series tells the story using the perspectives of a group of fictional characters. The theme being political events that gave voice to the great desire of a people for freedom to govern their own country.
