Nominated for nine British Independent Film Awards (and winning for best director).
A soldier (played by rising star Jack O’Connell), is caught behind enemy lines in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1971, a time when the bitter tribal enmity between the Catholic IRA and the Protestant Loyalists began erupting into terrible carnage, and young and naive British soldiers like the film’s Gary Hook found themselves uncomprehendingly in the middle.
“An incendiary film that takes off like a house afire, “’71” is a tense thriller from Britain that so adroitly joins physical intensity, emotional authenticity and political acuity that you may find yourself forgetting to take a breath. ” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
“Mr. O’Connell runs away with ” ’71,” in which his character’s every emotional, psychological and physical hurdle makes for kinetic cinema. ” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
“Big-screen storytelling stripped to its dramatic and visual essentials, and the result is nothing less than shattering. ” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
