’71 (15)

2014 (UK)  (Action, Drama, Thriller) 

Starring:     Jack O’Connell, Sam Reid, Sean Harris
Director:     Yann Demange

’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.

Winner of the Best British Independent Film award in 2014, ’71 stays true to its fact-based origins while remaining as gripping as any solidly crafted action thriller. The threat of sudden violence hangs over every mundane conversation, and Demange expertly sustains the tension, allowing anxiety to build, briefly ebb, and then build again, over and over.
