Very sweet movie! Great acting & beautiful cinematography. Kenneth Branagh did a great job creating this.
Great historical portrayal of the beginning of the modern day Troubles from the family perspective. Not everyone wanted to be in the civil war.
So many films are described as love letters — to places, to time, to people, to even the idea of cinema — that the phrase has almost been rendered meaningless. But Belfast really is the quintessential cinematic love letter.
The micro-homilies proliferate, the stagy drama heightens, and subtlety gives way to a little pandering. You can forgive these transgressions – there’s never any doubt that Branagh has put his heart into this endeavor – but they keep it from achieving greatness.
The film is not a masterpiece, but a memory box. Comforting, inviting, and one you won’t mind keeping close.
