Terry George had been nominated for an Oscar in 2005 for his feature film Hotel Rwanda, so it is perhaps no surprise that the Academy awarded him the Best Short Film Oscar for The Shore. It is a fairly gentle drama about a man returning to Northern Ireland with his grown daughter after 25 years in America. He feels the need to track down an old friend and apologise for deserting him after he was shot during The Troubles (the conflict between Republicans and the British in Northern Ireland). However, this is not a political film by any means. The Belfast born George's latest feature film is The Promise starring Oscar Isaac (Star Wars) and Christian Bale (Batman). If you like The Shore by Terry George be sure to rate it and share it.
