RTHReviews: #Belfast

RTHReviews: #Belfast

Since the time of its release, the film’s making quite a buzz around the circuit and everyone’s just raving about it. And having watched it, now I understand why.

Belfast speaks so much, but with so much love and kindness, and overall, it’s such a raw and emotional film. With the semi-autobiographical approach, Sir Kenneth Branagh has captured the essence of the film so beautifully and the output is just brilliant to watch.

(Here’s the official synopsis of the film: A semi-autobiographical film which chronicles the life of a working class family and their young son’s childhood during the tumult of the late 1960s in the Northern Ireland capital.)

While the entire cast is so good with their performances, and their relationships in the film are so heartwarming, the center point of the film remains Jude Hill’s performance. He’s so natural with his role, you’d confuse it for a documentary.

You’re seeing the film with his eyes, and how he sees the world. And that perspective from the eyes of a child is what makes this such a great thing to watch.

Belfast is beautiful, the essence of the relationships amongst the kind of environment around is enthralling to watch and is a definite contender in the awards season.
