Kenneth Branagh Returns To Talk ‘Belfast' Starring Jamie Dornan And Caitriona Balfe
Kenneth Branagh is headed to the Oscars with Belfast.
Filmmaker Kenneth Branagh joins the show to chat about one of our favorite movies of the year, Belfast, starring Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, and Judi Dench. This film has immediately jumped to the top of our lists for this season’s race to the Academy Awards. Branagh talks with us about his lens choices, a very intimate moment of reading the script to Dame Judi Dench for the first time, and the film’s connection to his childhood and family.
Stick around for our reviews on Rebecca Hall’s directorial debut Passing, Sean’s thoughts on Red Notice (starring Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot, and Ryan Reynolds) now that he’s had the chance to see it, and of course our rave reviews for our movie fo the week Belfast.
