Belfast (out Feb 3) is a likeable crowd-pleaser that also provides a few plot points to reflect upon. Set in Belfast 1969, it's not so much about The Troubles but rather a coming-of-age tale centred on a 9-year-old boy. His parents and grandparents shower him with love and wisdom... while also trying to shield him from the world's harshest realities. Superb with moving performances. Grade: A-.
