"Take movies, music, poetry out of life & its gone!"
In The Name Of The Father (1993) - (Movies To See Before You Die - Biographical / Drama)
17 Nov, 2007 | Movies To See Before You Die / Biographical

A well made movie based on a true shameful incident in the history of Western Justice. The film shows how an Irishman is wrongly charged with the blame of a terrorist bomb attack. It is not a mistake by the police but they do so knowingly. This gets proved when the original bomber gets arrested and he admits doing it. All the police and judicial system just covers the mess they had made. The police even arrest the father and family members of the Irishman who are then sent to jail for several years.

Ironically, the father and son are kept in the same cell and the scenes of their confrontation are just worth watching. The father dies in front of his son in the cell. Years later Emma Thompson, a lawyer fights for the wrongly accused family and brings the truth out. A well directed movie also nominated for several Oscars.
Knowing that it’s a true story makes us all think about the family which suffered for years in the jail being innocent. Really deserves a serious watch, not to be missed.

Directed By Jim Sheridan
Starring : Philip King, Emma Thompson & Daniel Day Lewis
