Fans of Orlando Bloom's nude paddle board pictures will be pleased to hear that the first time you see him in this South African crime thriller the man himself is naked in all his glory yet again.

That might be taking away somewhat from the film itself which is a gripping story of crime, drugs and big business in some of South Africa's poorest townships. Bloom plays a grizzled detective, almost perennially hung over, who has a poor relationship with his son and his ex-wife. His boss is played by Forrest Whitaker who as a child witnessed the 'necklace' killing of his father during the apartheid years.

Rams (15A)

Gummi and Kiddi are brothers living in rural Iceland.

They have both dedicated their lives to tending sheep and their farms are next door to each other. But they have not spoken in over 40 years, a feud that has reduced any necessary communication between them to be carried out via written messages delivered by Kiddi's dog.

However when one of their sheep contracts a contagious disease, the livelihood of the brothers and the entire rural community they are a part of comes under threat. Can the brothers set aside their differences under the circumstances?

Writer-director Grímur Hákonarson beautifully captures the tragicomic plight of the brothers against the stark beauty of the Icelandic valleys to deliver a charming and moving drama.

See Rams in Garter Lane Arts Centre on Sunday 22nd at 7.30pm. Booking

The Unfortunate Englishman by John Lawton Publisher Grove Press UK Price €18.90

Joe Wilderness came from as tough an existence as an eastend kid and an early life of crime to become one of MI6's most adept operatives.

He was not only picked by the boss as someone with great potential he also went on to marry the boss's daughter. However the two parts of his life are always at conflict with each other, which is perhaps why he makes such a good spy out in the field. He can think on his feet, be ruthless when necessary but has an education that means that he is fluent in German and Russian. He is under no illusion about what sort of life a spy working in the Cold War of Eastern Europe means but for the most part he is always able

Letters to the Editor

However, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny it seems that his political career was just about breathing long before his colleagues had him dead and buried. Although no one, least of all the Taoiseach himself, has come and said it yet, Enda Kenny's premiership ended last week with a truly awful performance in the Dáil where some members of the Opposition were calling for his head while his own party seemed to be won …
