The Journey

The Journey Release Date: June 16, 2017

The Journey is the gripping account of how two men from opposite sides of the political spectrum came together to change the course of history. In 2006, amid the decades-long conflict in Northern Ireland, representatives from the two warring factions meet for negotiations. In one corner is Ian Paisley (Timothy Spall, Mr. Turner, Harry Potter), the deeply conservative British loyalist; in the other is Martin McGuinness (Colm Meaney, Hell on Wheels, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), a former Irish Republican Army leader who has devoted his life to the cause of Irish reunification. Over the course of an impromptu, detour-filled car ride through the Scottish countryside, each begins to see the other less as an enemy, and more as an individual – a breakthrough that promises to at last bring peace to the troubled region.

Driven by two virtuoso central performances and co-starring John Hurt, Freddie Highmore, and Toby Stephens, The Journey is a relevant reminder of how simple humanity can overcome political division.
