Following My Left Foot, Sheridan and Day-Lewis reunited to overwhelm audiences with another true story of courage. Day-Lewis powerfully portrays Gerry Conlon, an Irishman wrongfully jailed for a fatal IRA bombing, whose father Giuseppe (a magnificent Pete Postlethwaite) is then railroaded into conviction as an accessory. Years in prison take their toll as lawyer Gareth Peirce (the great Emma Thompson) fights back against the cover-up of the injustice.

A film by Jim Sheridan
