'Ireland and Cinema offers the reader a diverse and methodologically-rich collection of essays on the state of Irish cinema today. With chapters on gender, stardom, the city, post-Troubles Northern Ireland, documentaries, genres and festivals, this is the perfect resource for teachers, researchers and students. It sets down a marker for further writing in the discipline and is a model for National Cinema studies.' - Dr Ruth Barton, Department of Film, Trinity College Dublin

'Ireland and Cinema animates a wide-ranging and stimulating set of contemporary views, a timely volume working with a plurality of films that circulate within its boundaries. Of course in creating a space for contention there will be the inclusion of many arguable or disputable viewpoints, but they are an indispensable part of a dynamic discursive context. This is where creative and critical analysis has the potential to feed into politics and policy, and even practice.' - Professor Rod Stoneman, HustonSchool of Film and Visual Media, NUI Galway
