This Brilliant Movie Was Released On Netflix Today

Helloooooo Jamie Dornan

The Siege of Jadotville is now available globally on Netflix. 

The movie centres around Commander Patrick Quinlan (Dornan) of the Irish UN battalion during the-little-heard-about seige of Jadotville in 1961. His 150 men come under attack by 3,000 Congolese troops led by French and Belgian mercenaries in what is set to be an adrenaline-pumping movie. 

The film was screened at Galway's Film Fleadh in July and was highly commended. It was released in all cinemas then on September 19 and has gotten an unreal reaction.

It currently has 8/10 on Which is always a good sign.
