Focus Features sets November 2021 release for Kenneth Branagh’s coming of age story ‘Belfast’
Focus Features will release Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast on Friday, November 12, 2021 in theaters domestically.
Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh (Hamlet), Belfast is a poignant story of love, laughter and loss in one boy’s childhood, amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s. The cast stars Golden Globe nominee Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Academy Award winner Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love), Jamie Dornan (Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar), Ciaran Hinds (The Terror), and introduces 10-year old Jude Hill. Dornan and Balfe play a passionate working-class couple caught up in the mayhem, with Dench and Hinds as sharp-witted grandparents.
The film is produced by Branagh, Laura Berwick, Becca Kovacik and Tamar Thomas.
