The Journey 12A

Director: Nick Hamm
Cast: Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney

Country: UK
Year: 2016
Duration: 94m

Starring Timothy Spall as First Minister Paisley and Colm Meaney as his counterpart Martin McGuinness, the film tells the story of how the one-time enemies came together to herald the beginning of a new power-sharing agreement between the DUP and Sinn Fein in Northern Ireland. Set before the 2006 St Andrews Agreement, the two are forced to take a short journey together in which they will take the biggest leap of faith and change the course of history. Colin Bateman's beautifully structured script and Nick Hamm's crisp direction ensure that, even though we know how this story ends, the getting there is suspenseful, moving, and wholly engrossing.
