Cinema & Conversation: Belfast

Join us at Jesuit Retreat Center each month for films that inspire and entertain.

After each movie, there will be time for conversation and questions. We continue in January with the 2021 film Belfast.

The film takes place in Belfast, Northern Ireland, near the start of the Troubles in August 1969. In this lyrical, richly human, and illuminating autobiographical film, writer and director Kenneth Branaugh focuses on the wonders, mysteries, and paradoxical experiences of Buddy (Jude Hill), a smart, sensitive, creative, and soulful nine year old. He and his older brother (Lewis McAske) are lovingly nurtured by his feisty mother (Caitriona Balfe), his hard-working father (Jamie Dorman) who has a job in England as a skilled laborer, his wise grandfather (Ciaran Hinds), and his witty grandmother (Judi Dench).
