The Guard

Director: John Michael McDonagh

Starring: Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Rory Keenan, Mark Strong.

Simple plot here. After a body turns up in rural Ireland (County Galway)it appears to be the handy work of organized crime. American FBI agent, Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle) is called in to work with the local constabulary. Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson) and his young Garda, colleague, Aidan McBride (Rory Keenan) are drawn into a larger “international drug smuggling” investigation. A host of amusing Irish characters including Boyle’s angelic mum (Fionnula Flanagan) makes for an amusing wheeze.
