Part of European Arthouse Cinema Day
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13 AT 2:00PM
General Admission: $8 | Loft Members: $6
Don’t miss this big screen presentation of Oscar-winning writer/director Martin McDonagh’s 2008 comedy/drama In Bruges, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, the perfect companion film to McDonagh’s latest, The Banshees of Inisherin, currently showing at The Loft Cinema!
Award-winning playwright Martin McDonagh brought his considerable talents to the big screen for the first time with this surreal, pitch-black assassins-in-hiding comedy. After a particularly difficult/botched job, Irish hit men Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are given instructions to “get the f**k out of London,” and to head to Belgium to hide out until things cool down. Ray hates the quaint, storybook city of Bruges they land in, but Ken finds its beauty and peacefulness enchanting. Their experiences become increasingly chaotic and possibly life-changing as they encounter tourists, locals, and a potential romance for Ray, all while engaging in a life or death struggle with a very angry crime boss named Harry (Ralph Fiennes). Nominated for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar, McDonagh’s hilarious, profound, profanity-packed comedic thriller is a genuine modern classic. (Dir. by Martin McDonagh, 2008, UK, 107 mins., Rated R)
