the dilemma
Greetings again from the darkness. Despite Irish ancestry, during my childhood, Ireland was vaguely described as a place to avoid due to the Northern Ireland Conflict (also known as The Troubles). In contrast, the childhood of writer-director Kenneth Branagh was smack dab in the middle of this political and religious mess. This autobiographical project is a sentimental look back at his youth and the connection to his career as a filmmaker. This is very attractive and appealing filmmaking, and one that acknowledges the violent atmosphere without dwelling on it.

An opening aerial view of present day Belfast shipyards in full color abruptly transitions back to black and white 1969. A young boy plays and skips cheerfully as he makes his way through the apparently idyllic neighborhood. The pleasantries are shattered and give way to the frenzied fear and havoc created by an approaching angry mob. The native Protestants’ goal is to push out all Catholics from the area. The happy young boy we first see is Buddy (played by newcomer Jude Hill), the stand-in for Branagh as a child. While watching, we must keep in mind that we are seeing things unfold through Buddy’s eyes – which are actually the eyes of a middle-aged director looking back on his upbringing. This explains the sentimentality and nostalgia, two aspects handled exceedingly well.

Buddy and his older brother Will (Lewis McAskie) live with their parents Ma (Caitriona Balfe, FORD V FERRARI, “Outlander”) and Pa (Jamie Dornan, “The Fall”), and are close with Granny (Oscar winner Judi Dench) and Pop (Ciaran Hinds, one of the finest supporting actors working today). Pa spends much of his time away in London working as a carpenter, leaving Ma parenting diligently to create normalcy for the boys during tumultuous times. An added stress is the financial woes Ma and Pa face over tax debt. Granny and Pop are an endearing elderly couple still very much in love, despite their constant needling and bickering.

As things escalate, the division over religion becomes more prevalent. Although he attempts to stay out of the fracas, Pa is faced with the “either with us or against us” decision – something he avoids as long as possible. Ma is obsessed with keeping her boys on the straight and narrow, despite their naivety and the many forces pulling them away. The family finds its emotional escape at the local cinema, which treats us to clips of bikini-clad Raquel Welch in ONE MILLION YEARS BC; Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper facing off with a similar ‘stay or go’ dilemma in HIGH NOON; John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and Lee Marvin in THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE; and Dick Van Dyke in his flying car from CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG. The sense of awe and wonder is laid on a bit thick for effect, but it helps us connect young Buddy with present day Branagh.

It’s quite a family dilemma. How do you decide to pack up and leave the only town you’ve ever called home, and when do you make that decision? When does the danger and turmoil pose too much to risk for your kids? There is a fun scene that provides young Buddy a lesson on how to answer, “Are you Protestant or Catholic?” It plays comically but has a serious undertone. Speaking of Buddy, newcomer Jude Hall in his feature film debut, uses his sparkling eyes and an engaging smile to light up the screen. His adolescent pining for Catherine (Olive Tennant), the smart girl in his class, is worthy of the price of admission. All of the actors are terrific, and in addition to young Mr. Hall, it’s Caitriona Balfe (as Ma) whose performance really stands out. Award considerations should be in her future.

Filmmaker Branagh has assembled a crew of frequent collaborators, including cinematographer Haris Zambarloukos, who works wonders with the monochromatic scheme. The soundtrack is chock full of Van Morrison songs – it is Ireland, after all, and the overall feeling is that this is a film Branagh needed to make in order to deal with his childhood prior to his family relocating to England. By not avoiding The Troubles, yet not focusing on it, Branagh has told his story in a personal way that should be relatable to many. It’s a terrific film.

BELFAST opens in theaters on November 12, 2021.

Fictionalized story of Branagh’s last year in Belfast
It’s set in 1969 Belfast, Northern Ireland. It’s a fictionalized, but autobiographical story of Branagh’s last year in Belfast where he was born before moving as a nine-year-old to England where his father worked.

Buddy (Jude Hill) is the younger son of Ma (Caitríona Balfe) and Pa (Jamie Dornan). They live in a Belfast workingclass community that is majority Protestant, but includes Catholics with whom they have always lived peaceably. Pa’s work as a skilled joiner is in England, so he’s only home every other weekend. When the Troubles begin Ma and Pa take a principled stance against distinguishing friend and foe on the basis of religion. Local radical Protestants try to force Pa to take a position, as well as trying to involve Buddy and his older brother, Will (Lewis McAskie), in fairly minor tasks, like taking messages.

Despite the Troubles, Buddy has a good life within a family where he is loved, especially by his paternal grandparents, Pop (Ciarán Hinds) and Granny (Judi Dench). Buddy is also precocious enough to develop a friendship with a bright Catholic girl in his class named Mary (Olivia Flanagan).

The family experiences a number of conflicts as the film unfolds, both within the family between Ma and Pa, and with the increasing conflict on the street outside their windows.

This is a well-told story. The music of the era provides a backdrop, and clips from various movies the family attends add perspective. Jude Hill is a very engaging Buddy, though he seems very young. Caitríona Balfe is excellent as the mother. Ciarán Hinds and Judi Dench have remarkable chemistry as the loving grandparents. Some critics think “Belfast” is too understated, but I thought the tone was bang on.

For me, doing the film in black and white was mistake. It felt like forced “technique,” especially with leaving the movie clips in color.
