An all-star cast has a viciously fun time in this comedy about lazy would-be thief Michael (Cillian Murphy of The Dark Knight) who owes local gangster Perrier (Brendan Gleeson of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) more money than he can pay. When a burglary to raise funds goes awry, Michael’s lovesick suicidal neighbor (Jodie Whitaker) kills one of the goons who come to collect and he is forced to go on the run. Dragging along his neighbor- not to mention his foul- mouthed, death-obsessed father (played by Oscar winner Jim Broadbent of Vera Drake and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull)- Michael has to stay one step ahead of the crime world while keeping his dad one step ahead of the Grim Reaper (Gabriel Byrne). Written by acclaimed playwright Mark O’Rowe (Boy A) and directed by Ian Fitzgibbon, Perrier’s Bounty is a cult favorite perfect for fans of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and In Bruges.
