Lyra ★★★★★

One of the most powerful documentaries I’ve seen in a long time. A call to arms against needless violence, a celebration of an incredible young voice taken from us too soon and a love letter to what investigative journalism can do and the good it can bring to peoples lives. It’s an exploration into the reality of post Good Friday Northern Ireland and the generation left behind when they were promised so much. It’s a documentary equal parts heartwarming and tragic, deeply moving and also blood boiling when they show those on the side of the suspects and the political inaction. Says a lot when all the film needed to do was show footage of Teresa May and Arlene Foster to paint them in a negative light. It’s the best documentary I’ve seen all year by a mile
