      “In the Name of the Father” is a gripping drama based on facts. It tells the story of wrongly accused Gerry Conlon and his fight for the release.

      Gerry was the best known member of the famous Guildford Four - a group of innocent Irishmen unjustly accused of bombings in reality executed by IRA.

      They were made


      to confess by the police, who, thanks to antiterrorist law then introduced in Britain, was able to hold them for seven days.

      While arrested, they were brutally interrogated, abused and tortured.

      I was really shocked when I saw this movie for the first time.

      It was unbelievable that people in a democratic country can be treated in ...


      • such a cruel and unfair way.

        When the movie was over, I felt mostly anger combined with euphoria.

        Since then, I have watched it several times.

        It does not make such a profound impression as for the first time, however, I always find it interesting to watch and inspiring.

        The actors are great; Daniel Day Lewis at his

        best in the leading role, besides Pete Postlethwaite and Emma Thompson.

        The script is great; it’s like the mixture of political thriller, courtroom drama and psychological drama (the relationship between Gerry and his father Giuseppe is crucial here).

        I recommend this film to everybody, if you have already seen it, see it again - it’s really worth it.
