Come join the Rappahannock Film Club as we present Five Minutes of Heaven (2009) starring Liam Neeson on Saturday, April 2nd at 2pm at the Headquarters Library.
From the Oscar®-nominated director of Downfall, the BAFTA-winning screenwriter of Omagh, and star Liam Neeson comes a startling new thriller inspired by true events: In 1975, 17-year-old Irish-Protestant Alistair Little assassinated 19-year-old Catholic Jim Griffin in his Ulster home. The murder was witnessed by Griffin s 11-year-old brother Joe. Thirty years later, Little (Neeson) has been rehabilitated and released from prison, while Joe Griffin (James) remains traumatized and bitter. But when a television talk show decides to bring them together for a live on-air reconciliation, two men haunted by one moment must come face-to-face with their own worlds of pain, violence and vengeance. This is a must-see drama that dares to explore both sides of Northern Ireland s troubled past as it comes to terms with its still uncertain future.
