Brendan Gleeson might be one of the most underrated actors in the public eye. I didn't know anything about this movie when I rented it to watch it, so I had no idea who the director is. Reading it now, it makes sense. The movie is really skillfully done, the performances are great and even when you think you know where this is going, it might still be able to surprise you.
There were a few moments where you think "well he could say this or do that" to prove a point. But that is not what the movie is trying to tell you/do. The movie cares about the characters, but even more about society and how we ourselves play a role. A role that might not even befit us, but under normal circumstances we would never change ourselves. Why should we, we are happy as it is, aren't we? These questions and a lot more are being transported via a mystery story, that really has some punches for the viewer. I also really liked where this went at the end, but that is up for discussion ... Watch it and I'm sure most of you won't find this boring at all
