Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The boxing match in the film, complete with the unusual result, was based on an actual bout.
  • Daniel Day-Lewis boxed and trained for 3 years in preparation for this role.
  • Although set in Belfast, the film was almost exclusively shot in the run-down docklands and Sheriff Street area of Dublin's North Inner City. The flat complex used in the film was earmarked for demolition but this was postponed until filming was completed. Since then the entire area has been redeveloped and now contains several multinational company headquarters, a college, hotels, up-market restaurants, a rail station and million dollar apartments.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The cut above Danny's left eye disappears in some scenes.
