Description
Based on a true story, A Love Divided chronicles the aftermath of Sheila's (Orla Brady) pledge to send her children to Catholic school. Raised Protestant, Sheila was forced to sign a contract obligating her to bring up her own children as Catholics when she was married into the religion, but years later she decides that no church will dictate the religion chosen for her kids. The dogmatic Father Stafford (Tony Doyle), however, is so relentless in his insistence that her children do, indeed, become Catholics, that Sheila is forced into kidnapping her own family. With both the highest levels of the Irish government and the Vatican after her, the potential consequences of not following the Catholic faith become increasingly surreal. Directed by Sydney Macartney, the film also features Liam Cunningham, Jim Norton, Peter Caffrey, and Brian McGrath. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi

display_descriptionBased on a true incident in County Wexford, Ireland, this film tells how one family's problem in dealing with a religious decision swept up first a town, and then a country. Sean and Sheila Cloney (played by Liam Cunningham and Orla Brady) are Catholic and Protestant. In order to marry in the Catholic church in Ireland, Sheila signs the required Ne Temere pledge that she will raise any children from the marriage as Catholics. She honors this pledge for a long time as her little girls part to go to Mass with their father on Sundays while she goes to services with her father and sister. However, she draws the line when the local parish priest, Father Stafford (Tony Doyle), insists on her oldest daughter goint to the Catholic school without any regard for the idea that the parents have the right to make this dicision.
