Falsely accused. Wrongly imprisoned. He fought for justice to clear his father's name.
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 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.
