Film captures 'war footing' of farmer battling to keep his land


It depicts an unbendable will that eventually leads to a Supreme Court ruling defending his right to property and overturning the IDA’s ability to force its sale. He said it was clearly intended to achieve the IDA’s objective of encouraging industrial development. Played by actors, IDA officials who arrive at Reid’s property, as they had done in real life, impress upon him the importance of his property to Ireland’s needs. A unanimous Supreme Court ruling overturned that of the High Court. The film’s final scenes capture Reid leaving the Supreme Court on the day of the ruling.
