Registration required. Fee required. Tickets required.

Belfast is a movie straight from Branagh's own life and the accomplished writer-director packs a staggering amount of warmth, wit and trauma into 100 minutes. A nine-year-old boy must chart a path towards adulthood through a world that has suddenly turned upside down. His stable, loving community and everything he thought he understood about life is changed forever but joy, laughter, music and the formative magic of the movies remain. The cast stars Golden Globe nominee Caitríona Balfe (Outlander), Oscar winner Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Ciarán Hinds, and introduces the ten-year-old Jude Hill. Dornan and Balfe play a passionate working-class couple caught up in the mayhem, with Dench and Hinds as the quick-witted grandparents. Belfast-born Van Morrison cements the atmosphere with a terrific soundtrack. D: Kenneth Branagh, UK, 2021, CC
