Every year, the Stockholm Film Festival lets the audience choose the winner of one of the most important prizes awarded during the festival; the Audience Award.

”The best film of the year. See it on a screen if you can”
Linus Andersen, Cinetaste
Collin Farrell gives the performance of his life, praised in Venice where writer-director Martin McDonagh also picked up the screenplay prize.
Armed with liberating dark humour and tight dialogue in sing-song Irish, McDonagh combines his grip on both Irish life and heritage in a film that manages to be beautiful and poignant while also unabashedly entertaining.
