One of the most accomplished feature debuts of the year,
Yann Demange’s knife-edge thriller opens with the new
army recruits patrolling the streets of Belfast at the height
of the Troubles, only for one young private (Jack O’Connell)
to be separated from his unit and be left running for his
life. Steering clear of politics, ‘71 focuses on the young
soldier’s fight for survival, as both sides of the divide fall
prey to internal conflicts.
Running time: 99 minutes
