Four Lions

Four Lions tells the story of a group of British jihadists who push their abstract dreams of glory to the breaking point. As the wheels fly off, and their competing ideologies clash, what emerges is an emotionally engaging (and entirely plausible) farce. In a storm of razor-sharp verbal jousting and large-scale set pieces, Four Lions is a comic tour de force; it shows that-while terrorism is about ideology-it can also be about idiots.

A Patch of Fog

Sandy Duffy (Conleth Hill, Game of Thrones) leads a comfortable life in Belfast. He is a university professor and a regular guest on a popular television arts program, and his one novel, though published many years ago, is still in print and regarded a classic. But Sandy has a habit of nicking things. Shoplifting has become the one little thrill in his overly domesticated life — but when Sandy gets caught by security guard Robert (Stephen Graham, Boardwalk Empire), that life is turned inside out.
