This week, Nicole Ackman, Josh Parham, Eve O’Dea & Dan Bayer joined our main podcast review. We’re always looking for what could be the Next Best Picture Oscar winner, and today, we may have found it. For our review this week, we’re discussing the latest film from director Kenneth Branagh based on his childhood, “Belfast,” starring Caitríona Balfe, Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Ciarán Hinds, Colin Morgan & newcomer Jude Hill. The film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and has been garnering Oscar buzz as the current frontrunner for Best Picture after it received praise from critics and audiences, winning the prestigious audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival. What did we think of the story, performances, and craftsmanship from Branagh and his collaborators? We discuss all of these topics and the film’s awards potential in our SPOILER-FILLED review down below. Enjoy!
