Description

The latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker and TCFF board member Terry George (“Hotel Rwanda,” “The Shore,” TCFF ‘11) is a madcap Irish caper comedy about a botched heist in Belfast. The story follows Jimbo Reagan, a down-on-his-luck gambler with a debt to a local gangster who decides to pay off his dues by robbing a local fish market, only to find out that it is actually a front for the mobsters’ illegal operations. He decides to seek shelter in an antique store run by Joe Maguire (Brendan Fraser, perfectly cast as the fish-out-of-water American), who is taken hostage along with a few others by the increasingly desperate and ill-prepared Jimbo. Never lacking for riotously funny moments, “Whole Lotta Sole” is a tightly- plotted ensemble comedy with energy and wit to spare.

 

In Person: Director Terry George.
