Film critic and Macalester alumnus Colin Covert '74, continues his review of the greatest films you've never heard of with the 2011 Alumni Fall Film Series "Hidden Gems and Surprises, Part 3." In the fifth film of the series, In Bruges, Ray (Colin Farrell) and Ken (Brendan Gleeson) are two hitmen instructed by their London gangster boss Harry (Ralph Fiennes) to hide out in Bruges, Belgium after a difficult job in London that resulted in the death of an innocent bystander.  While waiting for further instruction from Harry, Ray and Ken discover that their views on life and death become altered by their surroundings and the people that they meet in Bruges. Colin Farrell won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for the film, while Martin McDonagh won a BAFTA Award for Best Original Screenplay. Watch Trailer
