    The documentary “Bobby Sands: 66 Days” has broken Irish box office records earning the highest opening weekend viewing figures for an Irish-made documentary.

    Great to see this movie doing so well, a true legend deserves this type of media coverage.

    55 Thousand Euro in its opening week is a good sum of money, but I dont think the film/documentary will do well outside of Ireland.

    Very strong documentary. While there is nothing similar for those familiar with the hunger strikes and the context around same, the energy of this recounting of events makes it a must see.

    It was a surprise to see it made, I think it will do equally well in American although id expect a TV network to pick it up and not a cinema release.
