This stamp shows a picture taken from the film "The Field". The film is based on
a play written by John B. Keane, he lives in a town in Kerry called Listowel. He runs a
pub in the town.Jim Sheridan directed the film.The three main actors on the stamp are John
Hurt, Richard Harris and Sean Bean. The stamp was issued to support Irish cinema and to
advertise "The Field" worldwide. RichardHarris is an Irish actor from
Limerick.The film was made in Ireland.I did not see the film but maybe I will get it out
on video some day. It is not really a childrens film.I enjoy collecting stamps. We learn a
lot from different countries using stamps.
