Belfast w/ Tribute to Kenneth Branagh

  •   Kenneth Branagh
  •   United Kingdom

Belfast is the humorous, tender and intensely personal story of one boy’s childhood amid the tumult of 1960s Northern Ireland. Set in the city of filmmaker Kenneth Branagh’s birth and based on his own experiences, Belfast follows nine-year-old Buddy (newcomer Jude Hill) who must chart a path toward adulthood in a world that has been turned upside down by a sudden upsurge in sectarian violence. Buddy’s stable, loving community is changed forever, but the laughter, mischief, and joys of coming-of-age remain a constant. Starring a wonderful cast—including Judi Dench, Caitríona Balfe, Jamie Dornan, and Ciarán Hinds—Belfast is a charming and inspiring tale about the power of love and family in a time of crisis.
