Intermission, starring Shirley Henderson, Kelly MacDonald, Colm Meaney, Cillian Murphy and Colin Farrell, is a raucous story of the interweaving lives and loves of small-town deliquents, shady cops, pretty good girls and very (very) bad boys. With Irish guts and grit, lives collide, preconceptions shatter and romance is tested to the extreme in this indie comedy from IFC Films. An ill-timed and poorly executed break-up sets off a chain of events affecting everyone in town. There's the hapless romantic and his sex-starved best friend, the hotshot detective and the crook he's after, a young girl on the rebound with an older married man (not to mention his deserted wife), an ambitious TV producer, abandoned fiancee, preteen trouble-maker -- all unaware of how their choices are profoundly intertwined. Add a botched robbery, some brown sauce, a woman's moustache, flying rocks and dancing single seniors and you have Intermission. Colin Farrell heads the cast of this dark comedy involving a hilarious heist, a comical kidnapping and eleven intersecting story lines. Winner of the Douglas Hickox Award at the British Independent Awards and Best Irish Film at the Irish Film and Television Awards.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The great thing about Intermission is that you barely have time to spot the gaps.
Fresh: If Intermission isn't profound, it's got boisterous humor and energy.
Fresh: Often unsettling -- random acts of violence outnumber those of kindness. But it's also touching, startlingly original and even profound.
Rotten: There are some genuinely funny moments... There also are some genuinely horrifying ones. The problem is, they never really mesh.
i want brown sauce for my tea!
yeah that's what it made me want to do. the movie was really good, awkward, and pretty funny. not for kids though. Cillian Murphy with an earring made me want to laugh but a lot of the movie made me want to laugh. watch it. it's gooooood!
This is a funny movie! I would totally rent it, and even buy it. They use very strong languge and some sexual scenes but otherwise it is very funny. It's hard to understand sometimes good otherwise.
