The Guard - Bytowne Cinema - 7-13 October

Now playing at the Bytowne Cinema, Rideau St., Ottawa. Irish cinema! 

Popping with glorious, bright colour and off-colour jokes, The Guard is an Irish comedy and almost incidental thriller, though mostly it’s something of a bait and switch. The tasty bait (and reluctant buddies) are Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle, two of the best utility players in contemporary English-language cinema. Alone or together, they can be reason to see any movie. Even when they’ve been self-consciously set off against each other for maximum quirk, as they are here, these are performers who can dig a little deeper than their material.
