From acclaimed playwright, screenwriter and director Martin McDonagh -- known for an incredible body of work that includes such works as In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths, The Lonesome West
and The Pillowman
-- comes the dark, quirky comedy of The Cripple of Inishmaan
. When the small Irish community of Inishmaan finds out that plans are in place for a Hollywood production to film on a neighboring island, excitement runs rampant. Then young "Cripple Billy" secures a screen test and things really get exciting, as the strange citizens of Inishmaan campaign for him with a mixture of sweet devotion and madcap mayhem. Written with the type of scathing comedic timing and bizarre sincerity for which McDonagh has become so celebrated, The Cripple of Inishmaan
is an entertaining look at the fine line between kindness and cruelty.
