11 Memorable Quotes from Belfast (2021)

    Belfast (2021) is a movie based on Kenneth Branagh’s own experience. The whole film revolves around the point of view of a nine-year-old boy, Buddy, and his working-class Belfast family, who were attacked by a group of Protestant loyalists at their homes as well as the businesses of Catholics on Buddy’s street. At a very young age, Buddy experienced and saw the reality of sectarian conflict, and his family was caught in the middle.

    The film won the People’s Choice Award at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. Kenneth Branagh considers this his “most personal film.” This movie received positive reviews from critics because of the excellent direction, cinematography, screenplay, and, of course, the cast’s performances.
