  • Four delicious half-pints of Wickwar Ales, served over the course of the film

In Bruges

2008 | 18 | 104 mins

After an assassination goes horribly awry, hitmen Ken and Ray are sent into hiding in the picturesque Belgian city of Bruges by their psychotic boss Harry. Initially instructed to lay low, Ken and Ray’s relationship becomes more complicated when the true motive behind their trip comes to light.

STARRING: Colin Farrell | Brendan Gleeson | Ralph Fiennes | Clémence Poésy | Jordan Prentice

DIRECTOR: Martin McDonagh

PRODUCER: Graham Broadbent | Peter Czernin

WRITTEN BY: Martin McDonagh

THEY SAY: “An endlessly surprising, very dark, human comedy, with a plot that cannot be foreseen but only relished. Every once in a while you find a film like this” – Roger Ebert, 2008

WE SAY: McDonagh may now be better known for his Oscar-winning dramedy Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but his debut feature film still retains its bite, its emotion and its bleakly hilarious sense of humour. A riveting watch, making the most of its beautiful setting without ever feeling too much like a tourism advert – and three compelling performances from Gleeson, Farrell and Fiennes.
