This week we discuss 2016’s Siege of Jadotville, a film which portrays the valiant last stand of a UN contingent of Irish troops holding off an overwhelming force of mercenaries and rebels during Congo Crisis. With a veritable plethora of ally kit and guns the Siege of Jadotville is a well shot, competently made war film which tells a little known story. Starring Jamie Dornan as Commandant Pat Quinlan, alongside Mark Strong, Danny Sapani, Jason O’Mara and Guillaume Canet, the film is the first feature from director by Richie Smyth.
