Five Minutes of Heaven

From OscarĀ®-nominated director of DOWNFALL comes FIVE MINUTES OF HEAVEN, a thriller inspired by actual events. Winner of the World Cinema Directing and Screenwriting awards at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the film stars Liam Neeson (SCHINDLER'S LIST, TAKEN), James Nesbitt (BLOODY SUNDAY) and Anamaria Marinca (4 MONTHS, 3 WEEEKS & 2 DAYS) in a compelling human drama about two men haunted by a tragic act of violence.

In 1975, 17-year-old Alistair Little assassinated 19-year-old Jim Griffin. Jim's murder was witnessed horrifically by his 11-year-old brother, Joe, and the impact of the death destroyed Joe and his family. Little was arrested, convicted and sent to prison. In this fictional exploration of the lives of real men, Alistair and Joe are given the opportunity to reconcile 30 years after the terrible event. Can a killer and his traumatized victim make peace?

"Powerhouse performances by Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt make this an intense, ultimately moving film." - Variety
