As part of the Fernie Indie Film Festival, the Vogue Theatre in Fernie will be showing an Irish crime comedy that has been making waves on the indie film circuit.
The Guard is a lively and often hilarious Irish crime comedy. Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter series, Troy) stars as an unconventional small-town cop on the West Coast of Ireland who is forced to team up with an FBI Agent (Don Cheadle; Hotel Rwanda, Ocean’s Eleven) when a local murder appears to have connections to a gang of international drug traffickers. A heady blend of absurdity, dark humour, and emotion, The Guard will leave you smiling.
Written and directed John Michael McDonagh, this film has certainly made a lasting impression on the indie film festival circuit this year having been in the official selection for the Los Angeles, Berlin, Sundance and Tribeca Film Festivals.
There will be a special showing of The Guard on Monday, November 7 at 7 p.m. at the Vogue Theatre.
Tickets are available at the door.
