'The Guard'

The Irish comedy starring Brendan Gleeson and Don Cheadle opened last year's Sundance film festival and was met with a room full of buyers fresh to the fest and looking for acquisitions. The film, about a gruff Irish cop and an uptight FBI agent investigating an international drug smuggling ring, got great reviews and grossed over $17 million worldwide.
