In the name of the father

Again, caught this on DVD. Having heard a lot about Daniel Day-Lewis, having been Terribly fascinated with his portrayal of Billy the Butcher in Gangs of New York, having missed 'My Left Foot' (for which he won an Oscar, if I remember right) I really wanted to watch this movie.

The movie is simple and based on the bombing of the Guilford Pub in England. The movie is based on the true story of the Guilford Four, 11 victims of the miscarriage of justice in Britain. Incidentally the movie is based on the book "Proved Innocent" by the main character Gerry Conlon. While the movie is not completely true to the facts with lot of dramatic and creative liberties taken, it is powerful in telling a tale of innocents suffering at the hands of justice.

Good performances by one and all only adds to the joy of watching this movie which is more like a Television show and therefore you are not distracted by the plot or impending climax.
