Bright Shining Lie, A (1998) as Director
Based on Neil Sheehan''s Pulitzer Prixe-winning book, which tells the true story of John Paul Vann, one of the first U.S. senior military advisers sent to Vietnam. Initially determined to defeat the Communists, Vann soon realized that the way in which the war was being fought made victory impossible. He saw that the U.S. government was supporting a corrupt regime in South Vietnam, which had no intention of carrying out the reforms they espoused. Vann shared this information, becoming a major source for American journalists critical of the war. After he returned home in 1964, Vann became bored with domestic life and returned to Vietnam in 1965 as a civilian to help the war''s victims. Following Richard Nixon''s election as president, Vann was appointed a civilian general, the first in history, for his efforts. While serving in this capacity, Vann was killed in a helicopter crash in 1972.

She is shaken out of her comfortable existence when her son Gerard is captured along with the fugitive IRA leader Frank Higgins, after a shoot-out with the British army. Gerard''s imprisonment and his subsequent participation in the IRA prisoners'' protest to be treated as prisoners of war draws Kathleen into Northern Ireland''s political conflict and into contact with Higgins'' mother Annie, a hardworking farmer and fervent IRA supporter.
