"The Troubles" refers to the most recent installment of violence over three decades (1969–1997) between nationalists (mainly self-identified as Irish and/or Roman Catholic) and unionists (mainly self-identified as British and/or Protestant). The term "the Troubles" was previously used to refer to the Irish revolutionary period; it was adopted to refer to the escalating violence in Northern Ireland after 1969. The conflict was the result of discrimination against the nationalist/Catholic minority by the unionist/Protestant majority and the question of Northern Ireland's status within the United Kingdom. 

Which of these films depicting the conflict between the Irish and the Brits do you feel is most memorable? 

Beloved Enemy 
Bloody Sunday 
The Boxer 
Cal 
Captain Boycott 
The Crying Game 
Fifty Dead Men Walking 
Five Minutes of Heaven 
Good Vibrations 
Hunger 
Hush-a-Bye Baby 
In the Name of the Father 
Michael Collins 
Nothing Personal 
Odd Man Out 
Patriots 
Resurrection Man 
'71 
Shadow Dancer 
Shake Hands with the Devil 
Some Mother's Son 
This Is the Sea 
The Wind That Shakes the Barley
