The Guard (2011) @ Colinsburgh Town Hall: 7.30: ***AGM April 10th ***

25 03 2012

The Guard

Friday,  April 13th  Town Hall 7.30

UK 2011

Director : John Michael McDonagh
Cert:  18

Runtime: 92 mins
Starring: Don Cheadle, Brendan Gleeson, Mark Strong, Liam Cunningham.

Set in County Galway, Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) is a small-town cop with a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humour, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes, and absolutely no interest whatsoever in the international cocaine smuggling ring that has brought FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) to his door.

However, despite the fact that Boyle seems more interested in mocking and undermining the straight-laced, by-the-book Everett than in actively working to solve the case, he finds that circumstances keep pulling him back into the thick of it.

A black comedy made by the stable that made “In Bruges”

The film was first shown in Ireland and took the place by storm.
