In Bruges

British playwright-turned-filmmaker Martin McDonagh made a splash with this exquisitely macabre, ferociously funny and surprisingly moving directorial debut, produced by the UK’s Blueprint Pictures and Film4. Irish actors Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson exude chemistry as hitmen-in-hot-water, while the UK’s Ralph Fiennes has a hilarious turn as Harry the foul-mouthed head honcho.





After a mission goes awry, two hitmen Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Glesson) are forced to lay low in Bruges for two weeks, where they see the sights and both befriend and offend the locals. But when their boss (Ralph Fiennes) asks Ken to kill Ray, things take a turn for the violent.
