About this movie

Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh, 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 family lives in a largely Protestant district with a few Catholic families but one day his community and everything he thought he understood about life is suddenly turned upside down. Buddy's family gets caught in the mayhem and must decide to stay or leave the only place they have ever called home. Through it all, his passionate parents (Caitríona Balfe and Jamie Dornan) and quick-witted grandparents (Academy Award®-winner Judy Dench and Ciarán Hinds) keep the joy alive through music and the magic of movies in this feel-good story that reminds us that no matter how far you go, you never forget where you came from.

Beautifully made great cinematography touching acting by wonderfully directed cast Anybody who gives a negative review to this film should go back to watching marvel super heroes & Daffy Duck although Daffy might be a little deep for them People who have suffered this kind of persecution will identify immediately & the tears will well

I was really moved by this film! The acting was superb along with it becoming a wonderfully written biographical screenplay! I am highly suspicious of some of the reviews on here! To say it was a bad movie makes me think they either haven't watched it or it doesn't have enough extremely unrealistic action scenes from some dumpster fire action script or there is no animation in it! I really liked the film but I agreed with the academy that it wasn't the best movie of the 2021-2022 film seaaon!

Such a witty movie! Every scene is meaningful. Every character is vivid. It's worth the time. I particularly love the black and white setting. Nobody would dare to use black and white for a modern movie if they aren't quite confident in the story itself. People who enjoy this movie may also like the movie Brooklyn from years ago.
