Plot Summary

Starring up-and-coming talent Jack O’Connell (Unbroken), this exhilarating, breathless thriller recreates “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland through the eyes of a young British soldier. Private Gary Hook (O’Connell) is abandoned by his unit following a terrifying riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, the raw recruit must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorienting, alien and deadly landscape. Focusing on the vivid, visceral experience of one young soldier swept up in the action, '71 is a taut, edge-of-your-seat thriller.
