BERNADETTE: NOTES ON A POLITICAL JOURNEY
2011, 88 min, Ireland, Dir: Lelia Doolan

"Elected to the British Parliament in 1969 at the age of 21, Bernadette Devlin was the youngest-ever female MP. A vital force in the civil-rights movement fighting discrimination against Catholics in housing and employment, she was also a gifted orator with strong community roots and even firmer radical-socialist convictions. Despite having faded in profile since she survived an assassination attempt in 1981, the former "Castro in a miniskirt" proves well worth [Lelia] Doolan's feature-length probing, filmed over the years 2002-11... Doolan's documentary entertains as well as educates, thanks to her highly engaging subject and rich treasure trove of archival clips." –Variety
