Plot Summary

The Molly Maguires was a secret society of militant coal miners who battled their exploitation by mine owners with violence, intimidation... and sometimes murder. Based on actual events, this gripping story is a sympathetic and accurate account of the Irish-American miners' struggle. Richard Harris (Gladiator, Camelot) plays a detective on undercover assignment for the owners, fighting his own conscience. Academy Award®–winner Sean Connery (Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, The Untouchables) is the tough and suspicious leader of the Mollies who repeatedly tests the newcomer's loyalty. Excellent photography and fine action scenes add to the realism of this vivid social drama.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Occasionally brilliant. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The trouble, as so often with Ritt films, is that the situation remains interesting rather than involving. But at least this detachment means that one has the leisure to savour the textures of Wong Howe's magnificent camerawork. – Tom Milne, Time Out, Jan 14, 2008

Fresh: What it does have, however, are powerful performances from Connery as a labour leader, and Harris as a government agent sent to infiltrate the group. There is also good photography by Howe. – Film4, Jun 24, 2010
