Director Kenneth Branagh


Northern Ireland

98 minutes

Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh, and starring an acclaimed ensemble cast, Belfast is a personal and joyful story about the power of memory, set in late 1960s Northern Ireland. At the centre of the film is Buddy, a young boy on the cusp of adolescence, whose life is filled with familial love, childhood hijinks, and a blossoming romance. Yet, with his beloved hometown caught up in increasing turmoil, his family faces a momentous choice: hope the conflict will pass or leave everything they know behind for a new life.

The film, with a soundtrack of mostly familiar but appropriate Van Morrison songs, is clearly a labour of love and the final scenes are immensely moving. – David Stratton, The Australian

Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast is a moving, honest family drama. It’s anchored by tremendous acting performances, especially young newcomer Jude Hill, who carries an astounding level of emotional weight throughout the film. – Jeffrey Harris, 411 Mania
