Closing the Ring
Film legends Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer star in this sweeping romantic drama spanning more than 50 decades and two continents. Intertwined stories of lost and unspoken love unfold against the background of WWII and the Northern Ireland ‘Troubles’ in Sir Richard Attenborough’s final and, undeservedly all but forgotten, film. When Belfast treasure hunters risk the wrath of the IRA by excavating a site where a US bomber went down during the war, what they discover links destinies, and the past, on both sides of the Atlantic. A heartfelt affirmation of the durability of true love, the film is about digging up the past both literally and figuratively, about coming to terms with life and the need to honor the promises we make. With Pete Postlethwaite and Brenda Fricker in stellar supporting performances.
