The life of a film

In bruges is a film set in bruges, the film is based around two hitmen who are sent to bruges to lay low after a previous job ending in a child being killed.

In bruges stars collin ferrel, ralph fiennes and Brendon gleeson.

It was made by both U.K and U.S.A,  this explains the budget being slightly above the average in the U.K, at  $15,000,000 it wasn't particully large. In Bruges (on a worldwide scale) took $33,394,440 at the box office. . This may have been because of the limited advertising and also it had quite a specific audience.In bruges won a bafta for best screenplay, it also won a british independant film award for best screenplay amougst 8 others. It was also nominated for an osacr for best screenplay.
