The My Left Foot team of star Daniel Day-Lewis and director Jim Sheridan were reunited to make this political docudrama about Irish citizen Gerry Conlon (Day-Lewis), who was wrongly convicted of taking part in an IRA bombing that killed five in Guildford, England in 1974. After a brutal interrogation forces him to sign a false confession, Gerry is sentenced to prison, his family is raked over the coals, and later his father Giuseppe (Pete Postelthwaite) is charged with being an accomplice and is also sent to prison where he lives out the last days of his life. Day-Lewis gives an outstanding performance as a man tormented by the injustice served him. Watch for Emma Thompson as the persevering lawyer who works for years, gathering evidence to clear Gerry's name. A true story (though some of its factual accuracy has been disputed) about four Irish friends falsely imprisoned for an IRA bombing, this impassioned, expertly performed film from Irish filmmaker Jim Sheridan is one of several '90s films to deal with Ireland's involvement with terrorism. Among its various virtues is the heartbreaking pas de deux between the incarcerated onscreen father and son, magnificently played by Pete Postlethwaite and Daniel Day-Lewis, respectively. This story thread is as important as the political strife the movie depicts, which is why it makes such a profound impact. This motion picture reunited Sheridan with the Oscar-winning star of his breakthrough 1989 film My Left Foot (Day-Lewis) and received seven major Oscar nominations, but in a highly competitive year that also saw Schindler's List and The Piano competing for prizes, the film went home empty-handed..
