About Five Minutes of Heaven

From the Academy Award®-nominated director of DOWNFALL comes
FIVE MINUTES OF HEAVEN, a thriller inspired by true events. Winner of
the World Cinema Directing and Screenwriting awards at the 2009
Sundance Film Festival, the film stars Liam Neeson (SCHINDLER’S LIST,
TAKEN), James Nesbitt (BLOODY SUNDAY ) , and Anamaria
Marinca (4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS & 2 DAYS) in a compelling
human drama about two men haunted by a tragic act of violence.

In 1975, 17-year-old Alistair Little assassinated 19-year-old Jim Griffin.
Jim’s murder was witnessed horrifically by his 11-year-old brother,
Joe, and the impact of the death destroyed Joe and his family.
Little was arrested, convicted and sent to prison. In this fictional
exploration of the lives of real men, Alistair and Joe are given the
opportunity to reconcile 30 years after the terrible event.
Can a killer and his traumatized victim make peace?
