In this ambitious straight-to-tape drama set in Northern Ireland’s uneasy present, a farm girl (Morton), encouraged by a family friend (Harris), bucks her staunchly Protestant upbringing by falling for a Catholic who’s being recruited by the IRA. More of a scratchy, rough-knit shawl than the tapestry of politics, religion, and romance This is the Sea aspires to be. C+
