Belfast

Belfast
  • 2021
  • UK
  • 1h 38min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Jude Hill, Lewis McAskie, Caitriona Balfe

Acclaimed semi-autobiographical comedy-drama from Kenneth Branagh about a young boy growing up in working-class Belfast during the tumultuous late 1960s.

It’s 1969 and the imaginative, free-spirited Buddy (Jude Hill) knows every inch of every person in his street of Protestant and Catholic families. He pops into neighbouring houses as though they were his own and people look out for him while his working-class parents (Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe) hustle to make ends meet. But this blissful sense of security is about to be broken by sectarian violence.

Belfast might be Kenneth Branagh’s most reflective film to date, but he brings to this intimate tale the same gift for big canvas filmmaking as seen in previous work. Shot in lustrous black and white by Haris Zambarloukos and accompanied by a rousing Van Morrison soundtrack, the film sees Buddy’s child’s-eye perspective on the increasing social unrest give way to imaginings inspired by his love of movies. With a world-class cast that also includes Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds as Buddy’s beloved grandparents, Belfast is a big-hearted ode to a city, its community and to family.

Australian director Kurzel significantly trims Shakespeare's drama, placing the emphasis on brutal, bloody conflict and primal energy. The cast is impressive but Fassbender's warrior king has all the fury and impact of Pacino in his prime; all in all, an adaptation of raw, haunting power.
