Daniel Day-Lewis (Actor), Pete Postlethwaite (Actor), Jim Sheridan (Director, Producer, Writer) & 0 more Rated: Suitable for 15 years and over Format: DVD In The Name Of The Father [1994] : Absolutely fantastic

Very hard to watch the content.

Classic telling of the miscarriage of justice in the british justice system of the guilford 4.

Loved it i know a lot of people think is just fiction and lie but hey i wonder which part is not true, the part when he spent 15 years in prison for something he didn`t do, the part when his father died for something he didn`t do or the part when he claims his innocence all the way.

Very difficult subject portrayed brilliantly by pete postlewaite & danial day lewis. Watched this film so many times and still cry at the way these guys were treated. Brings to light the troubles of n ireland, but also the disgraceful way the problems were covered up.

In The Name Of The Father [1994]

This fact-based film about the “guildford four” was in my opinion very well-written with superb performances from daniel day-lewis and many others. In the name of the father shows how much hell the so-called guildford four went through right from their arrests to their lengthy time in prison, even though they never carried out any of the bombings that caused the deaths of some people (can’t remember exactly how many). I highly recommend this film to anyone.

Daniel day lewis best movie in my opinionit’s captivating from the beginning.

The fact that this is a true story makes it essential viewing,i was living in england at the time and it makes you realize how easy it is for the law to be manipulated and the facts distorted by the very people who are supposed to uphold the law. It was a case of revenge at any price, again showing that the law and justice seldom work together.
