British star Kenneth Branagh’s “deeply personal” directorial effort, Belfast, has picked up awards season momentum after winning the People’s Choice prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The family drama inspired by his own childhood in Belfast, Ireland, won the honour during Saturday’s TIFF Tribute Awards broadcast on CTV, which ended 10 days of pandemic-tailored in-person screenings and digital at-home viewing.
Caitriona Balfe, Jamie Dornan and Judi Dench star in the black-and-white coming-of-age tale, set amid the tumult of late-1960s Northern Ireland.
Branagh, who’s also an esteemed actor with an Oscar-nominated turn in Henry V, said he was “deeply grateful” for the prize
