Buddy, a nine-year-old boy sees his stable, loving life and community turned upside as violence breaks out on his close knit road in Northern Ireland, 1969. Despite the turmoil he and his family still find joy and laughter in music and the magic of the movies. With his beloved hometown caught up in increasing turmoil, the family faces a momentous choice: hope the conflict will pass or leave everything they know behind for a new life.
Belfast is Kenneth Branagh’s uplifting, deeply personal and joyful story about the power of memory, set in 1960s Northern Ireland.
