Acting was terrific and story educational. Not quite a winner. In black and white was O.K.
I wouldn’t call it an entertaining movie but it was educational about the trials of a Catholic family in Belfast. And they as most Protestants simply wanted peace. Beyond that I would get into spoilers and I will simply say it is worth seeing if history interests you at all.
Acting was awesome, THE TROUBLES time as seen thru the eyes of a young Irish Lad. How one family overcame these trying times. Was uplifting, sad and inspirational. Go see this movie.
Loved this movie. Great acting, accurate story.
Wonderful story of prioritizing family safety and security above all. Full of love and laughter, despite the ongoing Troubles. Brilliant performances by seasoned veterans Dench and Hinds, prime-of-their-careers Balfe and Dornan, and newcomer wee Jude Hill. Great soundtrack. Recommend, and would pay to see again.
Just fabulous and very different!
interesting approach on the conflicts in Northern Ireland , focusing on the effects on the residents and not so much on the politics of the time .
The portrayal of the hard decisions that Ma and Pa have to make for their family are so raw and honest. Jude Hill as Buddy is wonderful but Catitriona Balfe steals every scene she is in.
