Overwhelmed by grief following the death of his wife, Donnelly (Brendan Gleeson) shares a train carriage home with a troubled young man identified only as the ‘Kid’ (Rúaidhrí Conroy). As the Kid becomes more agitated and foul-mouthed, the journey takes on a violent and dangerous hue – for the bereaved Donnelly and for other hapless passengers on the train.

Not for the faint of heart, playwright Martin McDonagh’s film debut features his characteristically savage dark humour, and the profanity and violence which would surface in his later critically acclaimed feature films In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths and the Oscar® winning Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Six Shooter is part of The Oscar® Collection: A Selection of Irish Academy Award® Nominated Short Films. It won the Academy Award® for Best Live Action Short Film in 2005. To see more from this collection, click here.
