An action film with the famine as a backdrop, one thing it won't do is educate the Brits about the famine. The people that laughed must've been bored or didn't understand it.

Nope, historically proven. Plenty of food in Ireland, most of it grain, was shipped to Britain.

""He is vilified in Ireland - and not wrongly - because the policy enacted by the government at the time is impossible to defend. A policy of effectively withholding relief and allowing market forces to take their course is brutal."

"The greatest evil we have to face is not the physical evil of the famine," he wrote, "but the moral evil of the selfish, perverse and turbulent character of the Irish people."
How you can excuse anyone who said that is beyond me, if you replaced Irish with Jews, it'd be hate speach.

Quote:
more than 26 million bushels of grain were exported from Ireland to England in 1845, a "famine" year. ... Other exports from Ireland during the "famine" included peas, beans, onions, rabbits, salmon, oysters, herring, lard, honey and even potatoes.
