Music Millennium

Irish hit men Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson take a forced vacation in the Belgian town of Bruges when their employer orders them to lay low after a botched job. The jittery Farrell can't enjoy the medieval village's unusual sights until a movie shoot and a pretty girl take his mind off his problems -- maybe too much.

Reviews:

At only 38, playwright Martin McDonagh has already established himself as one of the most exhilarating voices on the stage (see 2004's brutal breakout The Pillowman). The transition to film was only natural, and as writer/director of In Bruges, he knocked his debut out of the park. Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson are hitmen on the lam in the picturesque Belgian city, forced to come to terms with their profession and mortality sooner than they'd like.
