Synopsis

The humorous, tender and very personal story of growing up in a world turned upside down by sectarian violence, BELFAST is prolific actor-writer-director Kenneth Branagh’s portrait of family life in the city of his birth set amid the tumult of the late-1960s.


Young Buddy dreams of a glamorous future that will whisk him far from the Troubles, but, in the meantime, he finds consolation in his charismatic mother and father and his spry, tale-spinning grandparents. The wider stable and loving community may have changed forever but the laughter, mischief, and joys of coming-of-age still remain.


With its brilliant production design, black-and-white photography and outstanding ensemble cast, BELFAST is a joyous evocation of the time and the place and an inspirational tale, told with warmth and wit, about the power of love and family even in the darkest of times.
