Now with the growing threat of a new generation inspired by the 9/11 attacks to escalate the conflict to new levels of destruction, the Catholic Republican and the Protestant Unionist sides are finally persuaded to seriously explore a peace agreement at U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair’s (Toby Stephens’) urging. Unfortunately, the principle negotiators, firebrand Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley (Timothy Spall) and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness (Colm Meaney), are decades-long implacable enemies. However, with talks about to start, Paisley has his wedding anniversary that he is determined to attend at home, and McGuinness decides he must accompany his enemy to prevent him from being persuaded to abandon this chance for peace. With Prime Minister Blair and his MI5 staff nervously watching from secret cameras, the two foes undertake a journey together in which they bridge the seemingly unbridgeable and change the course of history.
Plot: Firebrand Democratic Unionist Party leader Ian Paisley and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness, two implacable enemies in Northern Ireland, are forced to take a short journey together in which they will take the biggest leap of faith and change the course of history.

Wonderful cast in a film that could have used a better script. Timothy Spall’s accent slippage irritated at times, though I realize how difficult the Northern Ireland accent is to imitate.
There were many contrivances, a walk in the forest, in a church, in a graveyard to force the final outcome of peace. And I was astonished that the retaliative murders by the RUC got short shrift versus the bombings and killings of the IRA. 6/10
Top notch, in every regard.
Superb cast, and an inspired way to examine the turbulent times and a “what if” situation between two of the world’s leading historical figures.
I’ve always loved movies like this where there are minimal characters in a minimal setting. Most often it’s a play that has been transposed to film… I don’t know if this ever was a play, but it would transfer well to the stage.
I was in school (west coast of North America) during the 70s so Ireland was prominent in the news, and we covered it in current affairs, but like most school-taught history and history-in-the-making , it wasn’t “alive” to kids on the other side of the planet. It’s amazing I ever did fall in love with history! In an unrelated moment a few days ago, I discovered on Ancestry that I had some ancient Irish ancestors which I never knew about before. The last couple of days I’ve been online and on podcasts learning some about the history of Ireland. I’ve probably learned/*registered* more in the last few days than I ever knew prior. It’s fortuitous that I stumbled across this movie on Netflix.
While flipping through Netflix I had gone past a bunch of things I had already seen…and completely forgotten, and I was bemoaning the quality of things available. However, *this* movie I will never forget, and I’m so glad I decided to watch it! I just finished it and I will take some quiet time to think on it some more, as well as both the folly and miracles of flawed humankind.
A beautiful movie, brilliantly constructed. And yes, I was choked up at the end.
