BELFAST is a movie straight from Kenneth Branagh’s personal experience and tells the tale of a 9-year-old boy whose world turns upside down during ‘The Troubles’ of Belfast, 1969. His stable and 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. BELFAST introduces 10-year-old Jude Hill alongside Jamie Dornan and Caitríona Balfe playing his passionate working-class parents, with Judi Dench and Ciarán Hinds as his sharp-witted grandparents who are the glue that keeps the family together.
