[6.25/10] Belfast (2021)

Belfast (2021)

Quick Review: A deeply intimate look at the director's childhood and the struggles of growing up in '60s Northern Ireland in poverty amid an ethnic conflict, that also celebrates the joy of carefree adolescence and family bonds, "Belfast" is as simple as its black-and-white, yet detailed imagery, and depicts Branagh's vast nostalgia in a sensitive way, but in the end, its story is too personal to relate to or make an impact, despite some moving bits, conveyed heartily by the outstanding cast.
