Oscar-nominee Liam Neeson ("Gangs of New York," "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace") and Oscar-winner Julia Roberts ("Ocean's Eleven," "Erin Brockovich") star in the controversial true story of Michael Collins, the Irish revolutionary leader whose bravery and unswerving dedication to the Irish people changed history as he fought to free Ireland from British rule in the early 1900s. Collins' efforts to create a free and peaceful country resulted in the triumph of a free Irish Republic, and the terror in Northern Ireland that continues today. Co-starring Aidan Quinn ("Stolen Summer," "Practical Magic"), Emmy-winner Alan Rickman (the "Harry Potter" series, "Galaxy Quest"), Brendan Gleeson ("Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," "Cold Mountain") and Oscar-nominee Stephen Rea ("V for Vendetta," "The Reaping").
