Director: Martin McDonagh
Six Shooter is a black and bloody Irish comedy
written and directed by Martin McDonagh. The
film was BAFTA nominated, won Best Short at
the Irish Film Awards in 2005 and won the short
film Oscar in 2006.
Six Shooter is McDonagh's first film following a
hugely successful career as a playwright. His work
includes THE PILLOWMAN (Olivier Award and
four-time Tony nominee) whose 2005 Broadway
run starred Billy Crudup and Jeff Goldblum and UK
run starred David Tennant and Jim Broadbent, THE
LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE (Olivier Award and
Tony Nominee) and A SKULL IN CONNEMARA.
The New York Times called him "a playwright
with an anarchic streak as wide and twisting as
the River Liffey." McDonagh's first feature film, IN
BRUGES, stars Colin Farrell, Ralph Fiennes and
On a train journey home through rural Ireland,
a man whose wife has just died that morning,
encounters a strange and possibly psychotic young oddball.
His outlandish words and actions set in motion a chain of events
that lead inexorably to the
tale's dark and dangerous conclusion.
