Coffee Squirrel

Peggy Gordon from The Proposition--NSFW or squeamish/triggering

Just to give more of an idea of what you're getting if you're still thinking of renting "The Proposition". One of the most powerful scenes in the movie. They are hiding from the law as their brother, unknown to them, gets 100 lashes. Unfortunately, the song isn't on the soundtrack. I would love to have this version -- minus poor Mikey screaming in the background. Of course, the point is the stark beauty of the song and the horror of his punishment. I'm sappy and like the melody of an old Scottish or Irish folk song.
