The Tiger's Tail

John Boorman takes a crack at The Prince and the Pauper with this fanciful Irish tale. Brendan Gleeson stars as a hard-nosed Dublin real estate developer who thinks he's seen his double but later learns that he was adopted and his identical twin is now a vagrant. The expected mistaken and stolen identities ensue, with facile irony giving way to unpersuasive drama. The talented Gleeson, who had a breakthrough role in Boorman's The General, returns the favor here, carrying the whole movie on his broad shoulders. With Kim Cattrall, Ciaran Hinds, and Sinead Cusack. 107 min.
