Plot Synopsis:

Nominated for seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, In the Name of the Father tells the riveting true story of one man's 15-year struggle and ultimate triumph over a terrible injustice. Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis gives an impassioned performance as Gerry Conlon, a petty thief in 1970s London who is forced to confess to a savage terrorist bombing that he did not commit. When he and his father (Pete Postlethwaite) are both sentenced to life imprisonment as one of the "Guildford Four," he finds a fiercely dedicated lawyer (Emma Thompson) to help prove his innocence, clear his father's name and expose the truth behind one of the most shameful legal events in recent history.
