Plenty of action and drama throughout the movie. Daniel Day-Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite are brilliant.

Good Drama22 July 2011

Based on the story of the Guildford Four - the four Irish men accused on insuffient evidence of a pub bombing. Daniel Day-Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite gave their usual outstanding peformances, but unfortunately the film is let down by some historical inaccuracies.
