The Top 100 Inspirational Movies: 40 - 21
39 - In the Name of the Father
As true stories go, this one is a doozy. The Guildford Four
were four people falsely accused of a vicious IRA bombing that took the lives
of five people and wounded 65 others. They then spent 15 years in prison for
crimes they never committed. Jim Sheridan’s incredible account (and Daniel
Day-Lewis’ mesmerizing performance) of
their incarceration as well as their eventual exoneration is a thrilling
battlecry for justice.
There is too much injustice in the world, some of which we encounter on a daily basis – in our families, in our workplaces, in our cities and states and countries – and the weight of it can be overwhelming. What a breath of fresh air to experience a story in which injustice receives its just deserts.
