Do you love true stories?

Would you like to learn more about Martin McGuinness and Ian Paisley, the inspiration for “Never, Never, Never“?

Are you just looking for a smart Summer movie?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, you need to see “The Journey.”

Ian Paisley takes a break from the talks that led to Ireland unification to return home for his 50th wedding anniversary party. McGuinness tags along and sparks fly as the two discuss everything from family to their deepest political beliefs.

No one really knows what may have been said between the two, but the dialogue and themes remain relevant to our current global political landscape.

I was lucky to see “The Journey” as part of this year’s Seattle International Film Festival. It is a suspenseful, provocative movie with amazing performances.
