The Halo Effect (2004) - Lance Daly
Lance Day's second movie after his promising debut Last Days of Dublin, The Halo Effect sees Stephen Rea playing Fatso, owner of one of the worst takeaways in the capital. Although Fatso's heart is in the right place, his addiction to gambling means that keeping his head above water is a daily struggle. Quite aside from addressing the problem of his rapidly spiralling debts, Fatso doesn't endear himself to loan sharks (McSorley, Higgins, Kavanagh) with his natural tendency to help every hapless loser that crosses his path, including his staff members (Delaney, Condon and Smith).
