He featured alongside Caitriona Balfe, Judi Dench, Ciaran Hinds and Jude Hill.

“Jamie has spoken about how much this role meant to him — both in terms of how lucky it is to be in a film about your hometown and about how this role allows him to pay homage to his father, who died before being able to see this film,” Trina Vargo, organizer of the event, reportedly said in a statement. ,Belfast is very personal to Jamie, and that shines through in his moving performance.” The Oscar Wilde will take place on Thursday, March 24 at Santa Monica.
