Blind Flight

Time Out says

In 1986, Irish Republican teacher Brian Keenan and English journalist John McCarthy were kidnapped in Beirut and incarcerated in appallingly cramped conditions until August 1990. Chiefly adapted from Keenan's diary, An Evil Cradling, the film rarely strays from the grimy walls of the captives' 'home', and consequently captures, in reality-TV detail, the claustrophobic nightmare the pair were forced to endure in the name of someone else's politics. Hart (Keenan) and Roach (McCarthy) deliver performances of such emotional depth you can almost taste their fear.
