The Guard

The Guard (John Michael McDonagh, 2011) wr. John Michael McDonagh; Irish buddy cop black comedy film with Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Mark Strong, Liam Cunningham; unorthodox Irish policeman with confrontational personality partnered with an up-tight F.B.I. agent to investigate an international drug-smuggling ring

They should have called it Garda but I spose with an (African-) American vying for co-stardom with the wonderful Brendan Gleeson, as well as taking a credit as executive producer ( = brought some money with him?) it was aimed substantially at the American market. Bloody good film, despite the American invasion of an Eireann film.
