Academy Award® Winner Daniel Day-Lewis* gives an impassioned performance in this riveting drama that mirrors one man’s 15-year struggle and ultimate triumph over a terrible injustice. In the Name of the Father tells the true saga of Gerry Conlon (Daniel Day-Lewis), a petty thief in strife-torn ’70s Belfast. After angering the IRA he is sent to England by his father (Pete Postlethwaite), where his antics land him in the wrong place at the wrong time. Innocent, but forced to confess to a savage terrorist bombing, he is sentenced to life imprisonment as one of the “Guildford Four.” Working with a fiercely dedicated lawyer played by Oscar® Winner Emma Thompson†, Gerry battles to prove his innocence, clear his father’s name and expose the truth behind one of the most shameful legal events in history.
