The superb and beautiful camerawork of veteran cinematographer James Wong Howe gives a softness to the story that it would otherwise lack. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Realism without much reality, enormous care for the wrong details, historical accuracy and spineless dramaturgy. Full Review

Product Description:

Set in late 19th-century Pennsylvania, this gripping social drama tells the story of an undercover detective (Richard Harris) sent to a coal mining community to expose a secret society of Irish-American miners battling exploitation at the hand of the owners. Based on a true story, the film accurately portrays the rebellious leader of the Molly Maguires (Sean Connery), and his will to stop at nothing--even murder--to achieve social justice.

Plot Synopsis:

This dramatic film is based on the true story of a workers' struggle that took place in 1876.
A Pinkerton detective is hired by mine owners in Pennsylvania to infiltrate a secret society known as the Molly Maguires. This Irish-American group supposedly uses terrorist tactics, including dynamiting trains and supplies of coal, to win better working conditions and wages for the oppressed miners.
