movie notes: Intermission

Saw Intermission a few days ago -- right from the start, there's enough surprise built in with the formulas to get you hooked -- it's a sweet blend of romantic comedy, crime caper, midlife drama... And the ever-fabulous Shirley Henderson is in it too. She always gets cast as someone's sister, or someone's quirky friend -- I guess because of her pointy chin? but I've always thought she was great (see her in Trainspotting, Bridget Jones, 24 Hour Party People, and many more). Cillian Murphy's good as well.

Why is it that cuss words sound so much better with a strong Irish accent?
