In The Name Of The Father

  • 1993
  • US/Ireland
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jim Sheridan

Writer-director Sheridan manipulates the facts concerning the wrongful arrest and eventual acquittal of Gerry Conlon, one of the Guildford Four; but the deep, disturbing truths of this miscarriage of justice remains. Day-Lewis and Postlethwaite give career-best performances as Gerry and Giuseppe Conlon, the father and son whose relationship provides the emotional core of the movie. Brave, powerful stuff.
