A movie that grips you and makes you feel the weight of injustice that the Guildford Four suffered under. Daniel-Day Lewis gives an amazing performance that shows the changes in the character as the movie goes on. Great script, and almost all the other actors put in fantastic performances too, I only had reservations about Emma Thompson's performance which I felt lacked the realism of the other actors. The female roles in general are quite minimal and one note.

Great movie. Very engaging drama throughout the whole movie. The fight for what's right and justice is important. Lots of interesting emotions and relations between family and friends in all the different settings of the film - prison, court and the city. The film made me care for the characters, and then made it highly enjoyable. Then I can say I like most of the aspects of this film, script and direction is very good, although the best part, is the acting. Day-Lewis and Postlethwaite is flawless!

Highlight: Daniel Day-Lewis' acting.
He made a memorable character. The fight for the Oscar was hard in 1994. Tom Hanks got it form his great part in Philadelphia, and other would maybe say that Liam Neesons strong performance in Schindler's List should get the prize, but I feel that Daniel Day-Lewis should have gotten it after seeing this movie.

This one almost made its way into my top 50 favorite films, so I will reward with the highest grade:
6 / 6

I saw that one a long time ago at school and I still remember how much it moved me. A great movie, a touching story with a true background and an amazing performance by Daniel Day-Lewis. Deeply moving.

A solid, if fairly straight forward work that really benefits from a strong, convicted central performance from DanielDay Lewis. Powerful to be sure, and it could be any one of us.

This is one of the best drama movies that I´ve ever seen.
This movie really surprised me, even more because it is a movie based on a true story.
Daniel Day-Lewis did a fantastic job representing Gerry Conlon.
I´m glad that Gerry Conlon had a great taste in soccer teams (SLB)

The movie tries to convey the horrors of injustice, investigation, and rulings under the pretext of emergency laws and terrorism, but the details of these laws make us laugh by today's standards, even not when the film was shown in 1993. The film exposes us to the shock that the terrorism law at this time could have exposed any innocent person for 7 days without charge, and I believe that it is still present in many countless countries on the globe.

The film talks about the true story of the Quartet of Guildford and the Seven of Maguire, a very painful human rights story whose chapters begin with the arrest of the Irish young man Gerry Conlon in England and accusing him, along with three others, of carrying out a terrorist attack to bomb a bar in Guildford.

Although Jerry is reckless and has criminal tendencies already, but through the events of the film we realize that Jerry and those with him are innocent, but the investigation and interrogation process shows that it has many impurities and corruption in how to accuse these innocent people.

In the Name of the Father, on the surface, talks about justice and the feeling of oppression in the face of injustice. The events of the film are dramatic, revolving around other topics, the most important of which is the relationship between the son and the father and how it develops, as well as how an ugly place such as prison can constitute an opportunity for Jerry to mature in a way that would not have happened if he had not been subjected to injustice.

The multiplicity and diversity of the dimensions of the film, in addition to manifestations outside the capabilities of the planet in two scenes and the performance of two actors, who gave the film great importance and a special place for me.

If there was an Oscar for best acting duo, the Daniel Day-Lewis and Pete Postlethwaite partnership would have given them.

The character of Giuseppe Conlon has no faults. Even the story of his name, which allowed a wonderful scene to be told, was charming and incredible. He had a strange state of coherence in light of the circumstances in which he was, and in light of his background full of downwardness, which made him follow the rules and laws strictly so as not to violate the law. This flatness made his son Jerry view him as a weakness. But when Jerry realized when he tested himself in facing the same challenges his father faced, he saw his father, Giuseppe Conlon, gain ground and respect in every situation.

This movie is incredibly wonderful. It dazzled me and made me follow the events without getting bored.
