The Journey (2017)
Critic Consensus: The Journey's narrative deficiencies undermine a powerful fact-based story, but those problems are often offset by solid work from Colm Meaney and Timothy Spall.

Critic Reviews for The Journey
The men's meeting serves the cause of Irish reunification, but the movie itself never coheres into anything believable.
The real-life version of how these two mortal enemies became so close that they were referred to in the press as 'The Chuckle Brothers' is way more interesting than the 'imagined' version presented in the film.
Though the script tilts to the didactic, the performances are absolutely delicious, with Mr. Meaney droll and understated and Mr. Spall fiery and derisive, yet not above a joke.
The Journey ponders nothing less than the intractability of political violence. Which means it's pertinent far beyond Belfast.
The film is buoyed by its sharp, witty lead performances, with Spall's holier-than-thou imperiousness clashing suitably with Meaney's more affable obstinacy.
