Yeah, it did. Charming and emotional film, and a great performance by him.

He was never less than brilliant and I particularly enjoyed his nasty sergeant in a couple of the Sharpe TV movies.

Very sad loss.

I saw In the Name of the Father a few days after my father passed away. While my dad looked nothing like Postlethwaite, the quiet dignity of his character and his steadfast love for his kid was too much for me to watch. I think he broke me that day. I cried and cried for hours afterwards.

An amazing talent and an enormous loss. (Both of them, actually.)

RIP.

I had the honor to work with Mr. Posthlewaite in one of his films. He was a humble, talented and totally unpretentious guy, a true gentleman, that took the crew out for drinks at the end of the shoot.

This is a goddamn blow.
