Reavey Brothers

Based on the true story “Reavey Brothers” is set on the nights leading up to January 4th, 1976. The Reavey family, Anthony (Dylan Llewellyn), John-Martin (Niall Mcnamee), Brian (Kevin Nugent) and matriarch mother Sadie (Geraldine Alinden), live in a world torn by the atrocities of The Troubles and their reputation in the community is to work tirelessly towards anti violence. We follow youngest brother Anthony, an aspiring footballer and writer, as he struggles to avoid the mayhem of bitter hatred and violence intertwined within their lives, until that is threatened when conflict arrives on their doorstep.
