Overview:


The Molly Maguires was a secret society of militant coal miners who battled their exploitation by mine owners with violence, intimidation... and sometimes murder. Based on actual events, this gripping story is a sympathetic and accurate account of the Irish-American miners' struggle. Richard Harris (Gladiator, Camelot) plays a detective on undercover assignment for the owners, fighting his own conscience. Academy Award®–winner Sean Connery (Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, The Untouchables) is the tough and suspicious leader of the Mollies who repeatedly tests the newcomer's loyalty. Excellent photography and fine action scenes add to the realism of this vivid social drama.
