Written and Directed by John Michael McDonagh and starring Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle and Mark Strong, The Guard, released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 16th January 2012 from StudioCanal, is a comedy-thriller set on the west coast of Ireland. Sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson: Into The Storm, In Bruges) is a small-town cop with a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humour, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes and absolutely no interest whatsoever in the international cocaine-smuggling ring that has brought FBI agent Wendell Everett (Don Cheadle: the Ocean films, Hotel Rwanda) to his door.

However, despite the fact that Boyle seems more interested in mocking and undermining Everett than in actively working to solve the case, Boyle finds that circumstances keep pulling him back into the thick of it. First his tiresomely enthusiastic new partner disappears, then his favourite hooker attempts to blackmail him into turning a blind eye and finally the drug-traffickers themselves try to buy him off as they have every other member of the local police force.

These events unwittingly often Boyle's murky moral code. He realises that he needs to take matters into his own hands and the only person he can trust is Everett. And so the scene is set for an explosive finale.

The Guard is the most successful independent Irish film of all time in terms of box-office receipts, overtaking The Wind That Shakes The Barley (2006) that previously held this status. The Guard also won Best Debut Film at the Berlin International Film Festival and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival.
