2021 Toronto People's Choice

Expertly conveying Shakespeare masterpieces onto the silver screen, Kenneth Branagh this time delves into his own memories. Branagh’s latest star-studded movie is an autobiographical family film about the director’s childhood in Northern Ireland as the conflict between Catholics and Protestants rises. A poignant story of love, laughter and loss in one boy’s childhood, amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s, the film won the audience prize, the top award at Toronto Film Festival, which often heralds an Oscar nomination.
