THE JOURNEY REVIEWED
“The Journey” is a special film to the outsider. It leans heavy on works like “The Queen”, but it tries to make sense of the struggles between Sinn Fein and Northern Island. While the country remains splintered, there was a way to have peace and honor. Sporting one of the final John Hurt performances, the movie plays like a small character drama from 30 years ago. Yet, what it manages to do is get us to understand how personal relationships brought Northern Ireland closer to peace. It’s an immense character study, but I realize that won’t be for everybody.
