One of the most painful and moving depictions of the relationship between a father and son can be found in Jim Sheridan's In the Name of the Father, the harrowing true story of Gerry and Giuseppe Conlon.
A member of the Guildford Four, petty thief Gerry Conlon was sent to prison in 1975 for his supposed involvement in the Irish Republican Army's bombing of a pub in the English town of Guildford.
In Sheridan's film, Pete Postlethwaite and Daniel Day-Lewis play Giuseppe and Gerry, respectively, a father and son both convicted of crimes they did not commit.
In his video essay on the movie, the New York Times' A.O. Scott says, "At the start of the film they're in a state of almost constant conflict: Giuseppe is a modest, conservative, lower middle class family man--he's everything Gerry is rebelling against.
Gerry sees Giuseppe as boring and predictable but, as their ordeal goes on, he comes to appreciate his father's steadfastness.
