Captain Boycott

Lively and intelligent historical drama about the peaceful but spirited battles (in the 19th century) between Irish landowners (led by Boycott, whose name became a synonym for ostracism) and the farmers he tries to evict. Pretty good on period reconstruction, and enlivened no end by a classy cast.
