Five Minutes of Heaven

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.
