Based on a true story, Coming of Age, Period and Historical, War Films
Written and directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh as an ode to his childhood, this coming-of-age tale follows the early life of Buddy, a ten year-old boy growing up in 1960s Belfast. At this point in history, tensions in the city were high as political and religious beliefs clashed and began to spill over into the daily lives of its inhabitants. Buddy must try to navigate this complex and potentially dangerous world whilst also getting swept up in the music, culture and excitement of a city in the midst of change. Belfast is a fascinating and emotional snapshot of history that also explores the meaning of home.
Based on Irish author Frank McCourt's autobiography, this both hilarious and tragic film deals with him growing up in a very poor family in the '30s.
