Plot Summary

Colm is a Catholic and George is a poetry-loving Protestant. In Belfast in the 1980s, they could have been enemies, but instead they became business partners. After persuading a mad wig salesman, known as the Scalper, to sell them his leads, the two embark on a series of house calls--always in neighborhoods that are dangerous for one or the other partner. Then they find out they may lose their exclusive wig distributorship to competitors. Through a series of comic twists, the pair are given large orders for wigs by both sides of the Protestant/Catholic conflict. Should they compromise their principles in order to keep their business? Will it destroy their friendship? Could one of their wigs in the hands of the IRA actually put one or both of them in jail or even get them killed? Written by Miles Fowler

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Producer Jerome O'Connor filed a $10 million lawsuit against DreamWorks for effectively burying the film so as not to offend the British government. DreamWorks head Steven Spielberg was rumored to receive an honor from The Queen but a wide release of the film (which lampoons the UK government's treatment of Northern Ireland) would have scuppered that. Consequently the film was released in just 6 cinemas - and Spielberg got his honor. See more »
