In The Name Of The Father

- The true story of a petty thief imprisoned with his father for 15 years after being framed by the British police for a terrorist attack.

This 1993 biographical movie is based on the true life story of the Guildford Four, four people falsely convicted of the IRA's Guildford pub bombings. This movie is not of my typical taste but I have to say that not only am I glad that I watched it, but I am glad I didn't watch it in '93 when it was released.  Simply because I don't believe I would have been ready to properly absorb it in its full context.

With that said, I cannot say strongly enough how much I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I don't want to give it away - for those who have not seen it .... but let me just say Oh My God!

The horror that people in this world inflict upon others are just simply the work of the devil.

I was riveted to my seat for the entire length of this film.  It is perhaps one of the most gripping pieces I have seen  in quite some time! I highly - strongly recommend this as a MUST SEE - at least twice!

I am thrilled to give this movie five boxes of popcorn!! Extra butter please!!
