'The Guard' Clips & Interview With Brendan Gleeson & Don Cheadle

Irish film 'The Guard' has just won a major distribution deal in the US following its world-premiere at the Sundance Film Festival after being picked up by Sony Pictures Classics in a deal worth more than €1 million.

It tells the story of Sergeant Gerry Boyle is a small-town Garda 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 straight-laced FBI agent Wendell Everett to his door.

Below is an interview about the film with Brendon Gleeson, Don Cheadle and director John Michael McDonagh from the Sundance Channel.
