Curmudgeonly small-town sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson, In Bruges) has a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humor, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes, and absolutely no desire whatsoever to work with a straight-laced FBI agent (Don Cheadle) in from the States on a cocaine-smuggling case. Venerable Irish character actor Gleeson fills his acid-tongued cop with an irreplaceable charm, and his banter with Cheadle will leave you in stitches. |Read More

The bright young things of London's social elite lead an existence as languorous and lavish as it is self-destructive. At the center is Alice, a stunning ex-model unable to keep up with the high standards of living her peers feverishly chase.

A longtime writing collaborator of Shane Meadows (Somers Town, TFF '08 award winner), Paul Fraser makes a stellar feature directing debut with this poignant and bitingly funny family journey.
