This in-depth documentary by Maurice Fitzpatrick is a thorough & engaging study of the political maverick Hume, & ultimately reveals how his engagement with the US was a major catalyst in the journey to securing peace in Northern Ireland.   

Fitzpatrick delivers a hugely professional film here, with appearances & contributions from luminaries such former Presidents Carter & Clinton, and former PM’s Blair & Major, not to mention the ubiquitous 2 cents’ worth from Bono.  Never cow-towing or preachy though, this is a fascinating collection of intertwined stories about this truest of patriots, and an intriguing dissection of the unquestionable legacy of his political career.
