The Tigerís Tail Series: Film Comment Selects  Director: John Boorman, Country: Ireland/U.K.; Release: 2006, Runtime: 97
John Boorman re-teams with Brendan Gleeson, star of his 1998 film The General, for this light, beguiling moral fable, a fresh update of The Prince and the Pauper set against modern Irelandís economic boom. Gleeson plays Liam, a real-estate tycoon and self-made man haunted by a doppelganger who eventually usurps him both at work and at homeóand does a better job of being a husband to Liamís wife (Kim Cattrall) and father to his son (Briain Gleeson). Dethroned and cast out, Liam, the builder of luxury homes, joins the ranks of the homeless and comes to see the dark underbelly of society. And once again Boorman returns to a favorite theme: the conscience of the king.
