Colm Meaney on playing Martin McGuinness: 'He was born into this'
As a Dubliner who has lived in Los Angeles for three decades, Colm Meaney says he always keeps an eye out for Irish scripts – but he confesses to a slight feeling of dread when one lands on his doormat. Cliched characters, simplistic politics, shonky
In a misguided attempt to protect his family and pay back gambling debts to the local Mobster, Jimbo robs a fish market, which is coincidentally owned by the same Mobster. On the run, Jimbo is cornered in a local curio shop, where he takes hostage an assortment of colorful characters, including Maguire, who may be his illegitimate father. Surrounded by the Police, the SAS, and the Mobsters crew, the young man must find a way out of his precarious predicament with the help of his oddball captives.
Based on Guy de Maupassant's classic novel, this tale of temptation and obsession chronicles Georges Duroy's (Robert Pattinson) rise to power from his meager beginnings as a penniless ex-soldier by using the city's most influential and wealthy women. Set in turn of the century Paris, Duroy seduces Madame de Marelle (Christina Ricci) then marries Madeleine Forestier (Uma Thurman), a former comrade's wife. Fueled by his insatiable quest and lustful greed, Duroy conquers Madame Walter (Kristen Scott Thomas), only to learn that every conquest is marred by betrayal and that true love eludes him. A period drama based on Guy de Maupassant's classic novel of the same name, Bel Ami is a story about power, corruption, greed, and the seduction of influential women. Set in Paris in 1890, the film opens with the destitute Georges Duroy (Robert Pattinson) having just returned from war and desperate to scratch out a living. A chance encounter with fellow ex-soldier Charles Forestier (Philip Glenister) offers Georges an introduction to high society, where he discovers that the wives (Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci) of some of the most prominent men in Paris hold the power to elevate Georges' social and political standing. Georges is a shrewd manipulator and seducer of women, and though he experiences betrayal and scorn at the hands of these powerful wives, his efforts yield meteoric social, political, and economic success. He never looks back at the women he's hurt or what might be missing in his personal life. The costuming in Bel Ami is stunning and effective, but great costuming is not the only necessary ingredient in a first-class period film. Pattinson never wins over the audience-he seems stony-faced and sullen much of the time, and he quite simply lacks the charisma the role requires. The audience is left puzzled as to why the women in the film are so attracted to Georges and why they can't see his ill intent. Ricci gives the most powerful performance as
