Set amidst the sociopolitical turmoil of late-1960s Northern Ireland, BELFAST follows Buddy (Jude Hill), a nine-year-old boy who is lovingly raised by his Ma and Pa (Jamie Dornan and Caitríona Balfe) and doting grandparents (Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds). Buddy dreams of a life of glamour and wonder, but when simmering social discontent suddenly erupts, he must chart a path towards adulthood through a world that has suddenly turned upside down. Drawn from his personal experiences of growing up in working class Northern Ireland, Academy Award® nominee Kenneth Branagh tells a humorous and tender coming-of-age tale that earned him the prestigious People’s Choice Award at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival.
