Dir: Nick Hamm, UK, 95 min. Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney, John Hurt, Freddie Highmore, Toby Stephens

The Journey dramatizes a key moment in British politics, imagining a car ride as the event that led rival leaders Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness to the 2006 St. Andrews Agreement, which ended decades of violence in Northern Ireland. Timothy Spall as the ferocious Paisley and Colm Meaney as the more easygoing McGuinness are forced to confront one another (and their issues) during a minivan trip to Edinburgh to catch a flight back to Belfast. Their driver is a British agent charged with monitoring their conversation for Tony Blair and an MI-5 expert. The bulk of the film plays out as conversation, with McGuinness and Paisley taking one another’s measure and prodding at old wounds inflicted decades earlier. By framing it as a road movie, director Nick Hamm and screenwriter Colin Bateman undercut the potential stuffiness of the material and just let their actors play. Both leads are terrific, but the supporting players are great as well: Stephens is quietly wonderful in the corners as the equivocating, self-serving Blair and Hurt, in one of his final screen performances, matches him scene for scene as a professional cynic slowly rediscovering his sense of optimism.”—Norman Wilner, Now Magazine
