“It’s a celebration, by two splendid actors, of the art of political theater—and when the accord is reached, it’s because of what sly actors Paisley and McGuinness themselves turn out to be. . . . The Journey is a salute to what it looks like when people get sick enough of hate that they can finally, and gratefully, let it be.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety. The Journey is a fictional account of the extraordinary story of two implacable enemies in Northern Ireland—firebrand Democratic Unionist Party leader Paisley (Timothy Spall) and Sinn Fein politician Martin McGuinness (Colm Meaney)—who are forced to take a short journey together in which they take a leap of faith and change the course of history.
