: I decided when they made a film of Bobby Sands with short hair that I would never watch it. I never have and I never will.

I would suggest overlooking his lack of long hair
and see the movie for what it is. It tells a very important
story that goes far beyond the length of his hair.
There are several things to bear in mind with this film:
1. It's an independent film, as such it would not have the
$180 million budget of a major motion picture. The key
word here is "low budget." i.e. no hairdessing staff, no
time for the actor to grow his hair long. Oh and my
understanding it lost a lot of money.
2. The film says a very important message, a message
that goes far beyond how long his hair is.
3. It didn't have a major distributor, my understanding is it
only showed in one theater in the US of A, 68 theaters in
