Branagh took home Best Original Screenplay for his latest film, BELFAST, during yesterday’s Oscars ceremony. Branagh wrote and directed the semi-autobiographical Belfast, which stars Jamie Dornan, Caitriona Balfe, and the young Jude Hill. The film follows a working-class family and the son’s childhood during the late 1960s in the Northern Ireland capital.
