BELFAST stands as a monument to the power of childhood memory - where hope lives on despite the view from behind barbed wire. Set inside the war zone of The Troubles in Northern Ireland, Kenneth Branagh's tenderly crafted cinematic memoir is a loving look at the ones who left, the ones who stayed and the ones who were lost along the way. Jude Hill's performance as young Buddy radiates with light and promise, and Caitríona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan and Ciarán Hinds embody the ties that bind in a work that rises above autobiography to ask why we divide ourselves and when will we stop.
