Eight year old Buddy (Jude Hill) lives with his Ma and Da in 1960s Belfast, Northern Ireland and has to contend with the regular strains of coming-of-age against the backdrop of the Troubles.

Kenneth Branagh returns to the directors chair with this heartfelt black-and-white awards contender, starring Jamie Dornan as Da and Caitriona Balfe as Ma.

Told from Buddy’s perspective, usual childhood hijinks becomes intertwined with a civil war and even a first crush calls faith into question. Branagh uses a delicate touch on a heavy topic, in what he calls his most personal film to date. Judi Dench and Ciaran Hinds also star.
