Nominated for six Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director. An irresistible film carved from Academy Award nominated director Kenneth Branagh’s own experience in the tumultuous late 1960s in Northern Ireland. A nine-year-old boy 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. Winner of the Toronto Film Festival and People’s Choice Award. Nominee of 11 Critic’s Choice Awards including Best Picture. Starring Caitríona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Ciarán Hinds and Jude Hill.
“The affectionate cine-memoir is rendered all the more effective on account of young discovery Jude Hill and its portrayal of a close-knit family crowded under one roof.” — Peter Debruge , Variety
“Belfast is Mr. Branagh’s love letter to his family, and seldom has a filmmaker given life to cherished memories with more tenderness or vivacity.” — Joe Morgenstern , Wall Street Journal
