  • In the Name of the Father

    1993. Ireland/USA. Directed by Jim Sheridan. Screenplay by Sheridan, Terry George, based on the autobiography of Gerry Conlon. With Daniel Day-Lewis, Emma Thompson, Pete Postlethwaite, John Lynch. A compelling miscarriage-of-justice drama featuring powerhouse performances from the two male leads, Sheridan's film eschews politics to explore father-son relationship of Gerry and Giuseppe Conlon, who were wrongly convicted as part of the "Guilford Four" after a 1975 IRA bombing. 127 min.
