The comedy-drama film Belfast is a period piece set in Northern Ireland. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh, Belfast is a poignant story of one boy's childhood amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s. The film chronicles the life of a working-class Ulster Protestant family from the perspective of their 9-year-old son Buddy during The Troubles in Belfast, Northern Ireland.[6] Buddy's father Pa works overseas in England, while the family—Ma, elder brother Will, and paternal grandparents Granny and Pop—live in Belfast. During the August 1969 riots, a group of Protestant loyalists attack the homes and businesses of Catholics on Buddy's street. The residents of the street set up a barricade to prevent further conflict and Pa returns home from England to check up on the family's wellbeing. The family attends church, where the minister delivers a harsh fork in the road speech; the rhetoric is continually reflected upon by Buddy throughout the film. Buddy develops feelings for a fellow high-achieving Catholic classmate, Catherine, and they eventually become friends.
