Intermission, starring Shirley Henderson, Kelly MacDonald, Colm Meaney, Cillian Murphy and Colin Farrell, is a raucous story of the interweaving lives and loves of small-town deliquents, shady cops, pretty good girls and very (very) bad boys. With Irish guts and grit, lives collide, preconceptions shatter and romance is tested to the extreme in this indie comedy from IFC Films. An ill-timed and poorly executed break-up sets off a chain of events affecting everyone in town. There's the hapless romantic and his sex-starved best friend, the hotshot detective and the crook he's after, a young girl on the rebound with an older married man (not to mention his deserted wife), an ambitious TV producer, abandoned fiancee, preteen trouble-maker -- all unaware of how their choices are profoundly intertwined. Add a botched robbery, some brown sauce, a woman's moustache, flying rocks and dancing single seniors and you have Intermission. Colin Farrell heads the cast of this dark comedy involving a hilarious heist, a comical kidnapping and eleven intersecting story lines. Winner of the Douglas Hickox Award at the British Independent Awards and Best Irish Film at the Irish Film and Television Awards.
