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

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. In fact, it has been a while since Jim Sheridan has released something really impressive. Indeed, I just saw recently 'Dream House', his last directing effort, and it had been a while since I saw such a half-baked thriller, without mentioning that he also got involved in this semi-bi... read more

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.
