Adapted from one of his own plays, Conor McPherson masterfully directs the cast in this tale of mischief and morality. The story centers around three male characters and how their brushes with deviant society in the form of rebellion, robbery, and infidelity lead back to the discovery of a higher moral context within life. The situations and dialogue are reminiscent of Kevin Smith's work with ambiguous fates for all three characters. I especially enjoyed the scene where Ray is finally given the opportunity to ask the visiting dignitary philosopher a question which will totally undermine the respected theory and a completely different and unexpected question comes up (trust me, you'll just have to see it). The only drawback to this film is that it was only released in Europe, so if you ever have the chance to see it, do yourself a favor and watch it. It would be a well spent 100 minutes of laughing!!!
