    Synopsis


    In the Name of the Father
    The My Left Foot team of star Daniel Day-Lewis and director Jim Sheridan were reunited to make this political docudrama about Irish citizen Gerry Conlon (Day-Lewis), who was wrongly convicted of taking part in an IRA bombing that killed five in Guildford, England in 1974. After a brutal interrogation forces him to sign a false confession, Gerry is sentenced to prison, his family is raked over the coals, and later his father Giuseppe (Pete Postelthwaite) is charged with being an accomplice and is also sent to prison where he lives out the last days of his life. Day-Lewis gives an outstanding performance as a man tormented by the injustice served him. Watch for Emma Thompson as the persevering lawyer who works for years, gathering evidence to clear Gerry's name. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

      Daniel Day-Lewis gives another outstanding performance as a man whose wrongfully imprisoned, along with friends and family, for more then 15 years, and his search for justice...and to clear his father's name. Exceptional acting all around and excellent cinematography help transport us back through the almost two decade quest for true justice.

      This is a gripping true life movie based on events that happened in 1970's London. It's the story of one young man and his family being wrongly accused of the terrible bombings by the IRA and the shameful court system that keeps them in prison for over 15 years.
