Belfast was both written and directed by Branagh, who described it as his most personal film to date. It tells the story of one boy’s childhood amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s.
Dornan and Balfe play a glamorous working-class couple caught up in the mayhem, and Dench and Hinds portray the sharp-witted grandparents.
The official tagline for the movie reads:
“From lauded director Kenneth Branagh, and starring an acclaimed ensemble cast, Belfast is a personal and joyful story about the power of memory, set in late 1960s Northern Ireland. At the centre of the film is Buddy, a young boy on the cusp of adolescence, whose life is filled with familial love, childhood hijinks, and a blossoming romance. Yet, with his beloved hometown caught up in increasing turmoil, his family faces a momentous choice: hope the conflict will pass or leave everything they know behind for a new life.”
