Belfast stars Outlander’s Caitríona Balfe as the mother of a working-class Northern Irish family during The Troubles. Religious tension and the lack of opportunities put the family in a difficult position: they’re the first in many generations to think about leaving the city of Belfast. They all have to navigate so many difficult questions on belonging, religion, and identity.
The story, based on the director’s own childhood, is packaged in a noise-canceling black and white format. Also stars Judi Dench.
Overrated at everyturn.
