The Crying Game (1992) Written and directed by Neil Jordan
Stephen Rea as Fergus and Forest Whitaker as Jody.

Jody: In Antigua, cricket’s the black man’s game. Kids play it from the age of two. My dad had me throwing googlies from the age of five. Then we moved to Tottenham and it was something different.
Fergus: How was it different?
Jody: Toff’s game there, but not at home… so, when you come to shoot me, Paddy, remember you’re getting rid of a shit-hot bowler.

One Response to “Crying Game (1992)”

  1. This is one of Neil Jordan’s three most accomplished films with THE BUTCHER BOY and MONA LISA, and probably the most popular one, even gaining a Best Picture nomination. Great screenplay, one you showcase uperbly here.
