Critically analysing several films that were produced in the late 1990s, this chapter outlines the political and cultural conditions of a society emerging from violence, arguing that, while some representations remained tied to stereotypes found during the Troubles, others allowed for a more nuanced appraoch. The films under discussion include, 'Michael Collins', 'Nothing Personal', 'Some Mother's Son' and the short film, ''81'.
