6:20pm - Tuesday, Jan 18, 2022

Embraced by audiences and critics alike, BELFAST is a movie straight from writer-director Kenneth Branagh's (winner, Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay) own experience. This poignant coming-of-age film is centred on Buddy, a nine-year-old boy who must chart a path towards adulthood through a world that has suddenly turned upside down. His stable and loving community and everything he thought he understood about life is changed forever but joy, laughter, music and the formative magic of the movies remain. With Jude Hill, Catriona Balfe, Jamie Dornan, Judi Dench, CiarĂ¡n Hinds.

"...both grand and intimate, gooey sweet and shockingly violent, life-affirming and cynical." (US Weekly)

"There is something genuinely bold in giving a movie about Belfast in 1969 the warm glow of the everyday. It reminds us that life goes on." (New York Magazine / VULTURE)

"['Belfast'] is a major change of pace for the man who was once dubbed "the next Laurence Olivier," and easily the best thing he's done as a writer-director in decades." (Rolling Stone Magazine)

"All phasers are set to "charm." That's what this movie is." (FilmWeek / NPR)
