The western may be the most American of genres, but numerous other cultures have given us their own distinctive riff on the genre over the decades. From Ireland comes writer/director Lance Daly's Black 47, a revenge drama set during the country's famine era.

The cast includes Hugo Weaving, Barry Keoghan, Jim Broadbent, Stephen Rea, James Frecheville, Freddie Fox, Moe Dunford and Sarah Greene.

Black 47 is in Irish cinemas September 5th and UK cinemas September 28th.

The official synopsis reads:

It’s 1847 and Ireland is in the grip of the Great Famine that has ravaged the country for two long years. Feeney, a hardened Irish Ranger who has been fighting for the British Army abroad, abandons his post to return home and reunite with his family.  He’s seen more than his share of horrors, but nothing prepares him for the famine’s hopeless destruction of his homeland that has brutalised his people and where there seems to be no law and order. He discovers his mother starved to death and his brother hanged by the brutal hand of the English. With little else to live for, he sets a destructive path to avenge his family.
