Belfast is a poignant story of love, laughter and loss in one boy's childhood amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s. Buddy's lives in a largely Protestant district with a few Catholic families, but one day life is suddenly turned upside down. The family get caught in the mayhem and must decide to stay of leave the only place they have called home. Through it all, his pasionate parents and quick-witted grandparents keep the joy alive through music and the magic of movies in this fee-good story.
Belfast is a semi-autobiographical story of Kenneth Branagh's own childhood, and features the music of Van Morrison.
The Independent: "A film about the Troubles that isn’t about the Troubles at all"
The Telegraph: "Jamie Dornan shines in Kenneth Branagh’s tale of growing up in the Troubles"
