Wondering why times are missing?


This ensemble Irish comedy/drama follows the rapidly expanding repercussions when a restless young lad takes "time off" from his regular girlfriend. The smashing cast includes Colin Farrell, Colm Meaney, Cillian Murphy, Shirley Henderson and half of Dublin. The film is occasionally pretty violent and has a mean-spirited sense of humor: Think of it as the anti-matter version of Love Actually. The film shifts gears constantly from crime to comedy to farce to heartfelt drama. First-time director John Crowley holds it all together, though, delivering one of the most exciting UK debuts since Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. 106 minutes
