STARRING Brendan Gleeson, Cillian Murphy, Jim Broadbent, Jodie Whittaker
WRITTEN BY Mark O’Rowe
DIRECTED BY Ian Fitzgibbon

Kill me, I’m Irish. Brendan Gleeson unleashes Celtic fury as a gangster in this Irish comedy thriller. Set in Dublin, Michael McCrea (Cillian Murphy) attempts to pay back the debts he owes to a dangerous gangster (Gleeson). His solution? Harmless breaking and entering, followed by borrowing money from another crook. Michael does this all while attempting to juggle the girl he likes (Jodie Whittaker) and his slightly crazy father (Jim Broadbent), leading him to kick himself for not taking out that bank loan.
