Another Celtic Tiger movie this one is about a middle-class guy caught up in selling drugs and his persecution by the police and other dealers. Set in the usual Dublin haunts: nightclubs, bars, and D4 parties. A well-made and stylish movie but empty and lacking focus. Lots of jazz music on the soundtrack, the film makers care more about these characters than we do! Some of it is really good: the impressive sex scene(!), the police rushing under the backlit garage door, the old schoolmate now working as a doctor looking forward to the class reunion, and the late night garden party. Not a recommendation but this is probably the best of those Celtic Tiger films.
