Roger Allam Leads Belfast-Set Political Thriller ‘The Truth Commissioner’

5 March 2015 5:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Political thriller “The Truth Commissioner” has started to shoot in Belfast and Dublin. Pic stars Roger Allam, whose credits include “The Queen,” “Tamara Drewe” and “The Book Thief.”

The story, which is based on David Park’s novel, starts as the peace treaty is signed in Northern Ireland. The U.K. prime minister sets up a body modeled on South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which is headed by career diplomat Henry Stanfield (Allam). Stanfield soon uncovers some inconvenient truths about those now running the country, which they are not willing to let him reveal.

The cast also includes Sean McGinley (“Michael Collins,” “Braveheart,” “The Wind That Shakes the Barley”), Tom Goodman Hill (“The Imitation Game,” “Mr Selfridge”), Conleth Hill (“Intermission,” “Salmon Fishing in Yemen,” “Game of Thrones”) and Ian McElhinney (“Game of Thrones”). Declan Recks directs.

Pic is produced by BT9 Films for Big Fish Films and Samson Films. »

Continuum (aka I’ll Follow You Down) movie review: the time traveler’s family

2 March 2015 4:15 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Indie science fiction with a rare humanism, a scientific and emotional mystery with a solution Hollywood wouldn’t dare go anywhere near. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m a big sci-fi geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I needed a really good science fiction flick to wipe away the couple of bad ones I’ve had to endure in the past week or so, and Continuum — aka I’ll Follow You Down in the U.S. and Canada — did the trick beautifully. This is almost the movie that Project Almanac wanted to be — kinda maybe, if it could have broken out of the cheap Hollywood trope in which FX trump emotion — an exploration of the human impact that time-travel could potentially have. There are next to no FX here, and not even any new SFnal ideas. What there is »
