'71
 
 
Directed by Yann Demange, UK 2014
99 mins. English dialogue
 
Summary:
 
'71 takes place over a single night in the life of a young British soldier (Jack O'Connell) accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, he must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.
 
What the Critics say:
 
" '71 offers a lapel-grabbing, immersive viewing experience likely to shake up audiences who couldn't otherwise care less about the boredom-factor whys and wherefores of Northern Ireland's bitterest years."  (Trevor Johnstone - Sight and Sound)
