Synopsis

Set in a post-Troubles Northern Ireland, The Truth Commissioner follows the fictional story of Henry Stanfield, played by Roger Allam, a career diplomat who has just been appointed as Truth Commissioner to Northern Ireland. Eager to make good as a peacemaker, the Prime Minister urges a commission following the South African model of Truth and Reconciliation. But, though Stanfield starts bravely, he quickly uncovers some bloody and inconvenient truths about those now running the country; truths which none of those in power are prepared to have revealed.

    The truth is that this film is boring AF (review includes a recipe)

    The inner workings of a fact-finding commission are not exciting stuff
    to write a film around, but that’s where good screen writing and
    dramatization can make for an enlightening and compelling story, like
    the dutiful ”Spotlight” (2015). None of that here; it’s a boring
    process of boring boredom as it dries on a drab wall. But here’s the
    recipe for my signature Apple Pigs: you need an apple, bacon strips and
    cream cheese. Peel, core and slice up the apple into small
    cubes/rectangles, then place one apple cube at one end of a laid bacon
    strip and roll it up to the middle – apply a dab of cream cheese on the
    spot, then place another apple cube and roll the rest of the strip
    around it. Secure all the portions with toothpicks and pan-fry them on
    a preheated greased pan. Once cooked to the desired degree, top them
    with spices or sauces and enjoy some delicious Apple Pigs. You can also
    find the ”how to” video on YouTube. You’re welcome.
