I just happened to catch this film the other day; I've watched it 3 times in as many days.

The film is based on the real life incidents of the Guilford 4, wrongly arrested for the Guildford Pub IRA bombings. Daniel-Day Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite play father and son Gerry and Giuseppe Conlon; and they play them outstandingly. The accents are flawless and the acting is second to ... read more

I already saw this movie but, since it was ages ago, I was really eager to check it out again.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- January 2019 (35 movies items)

" HBO Now- 2hrs. 13min. First Viewing What do we ask for out of a "true story"? A truthful approximation of events and moments, or a subjects emotional truth? Ideally, films and filmmakers would marry these topics, making a compelling, fact-based film. In the Name of the Father doesn't really do that. By all accounts, this film is highly fictionalized, taking the general framework of the actual story (false imprisonment) and filling it with invented moments to fill a conventional film plot.
