Synopsis

Thomas Reid lives a solitary life on the fringes of mainstream society. But beyond the walls of his 18th century farm looms a vast American factory - vital to the national economy but long an unsettling presence in Thomas' life. Suspicious of intrusion, Thomas doesn’t welcome the State agents who come to forcibly purchase his house and lands.He vows to resist.Set against the backdrop of the landmark Supreme Court legal action between Kildare farmer Thomas Reid and IDA Ireland over their attempt to compulsorily purchase his farm, The Lonely Battle of Thomas Reid harnesses the immersive power of cinema, creating a multilayered psychological portrait of this fascinating individual and his experience; of the country that houses him, and the State that seeks to evict him.
