Here’s The Trailer For Belfast!


Belfast, the latest film from Kenneth Branagh, has been getting rapturous reviews at both the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals.  I’ve seen more than one critic say that it’s the first film that they’ve seen over the past few months that they could imagine winning best picture when the Oscars are handed out next year.

And really, I can see their point, even though I have yet to watch the film.

Consider the following:

  1. It’s British.
  2. It’s in black-and-white.
  3. It’s directed by Kenneth Branagh, who some would say is overdue for some Oscar recognition.
  4. It’s a personal film from one of the world’s leading Shakespeareans.
  5. Even though it’s a personal film, it’s also a film about the troubles in Northern Ireland in the 70s and therefore, it’s a film that can probably be interpreted as commenting upon the divisions of the present.
  6. It’s got an amazing cast.
  7. It’s a period film.
  8. Did I mention it’s in black-and-white?

As I said, I haven’t seen the film yet.  But the trailer looks amazing so I can’t wait until I do!
