'71

DIRECTOR: YANN DEMANGE - UNITED KINGDOM

“A riveting thriller set in the mean streets of Belfast over the course of 24 hours, ’71 brings the grim reality of the Troubles to vivid, shocking life. Within days of being posted to Northern Ireland, which would soon turn into a war zone after January 1972’s Bloody Sunday, squaddie Gary finds himself trapped and unarmed in hostile territory when a house raid provokes a riot. Running for his life as the lines between friend and foe become increasingly blurred, Gary gets a baptism of fire and we get a stark, eye-opening look at the dirty war that tore Northern Ireland apart. Suggesting an update of Carol Reed’s classic Odd Man Out, this tough, compact suspense is handled with a dynamic, vigorous energy.”—New York Film Festival.
