Colin Farrell's Brendan Gleeson is a man who fought alongside him

Colin Farrell doesn’t have many ‘true friends.’ But Brendan Gleeson is one of them. He’s a former soldier as well as a former friend, a man who fought alongside him. Now they are both dead, and that is why Gleeson is now willing to put his trust in someone else. And not a man who appears to belong to the usual suspects.

That’s right: there’s more to Colin Farrell in Life in a Day than meets the eye. His eyes seem to change, his features and body changes, his voice is more sultry, his mannerisms are different.

Gleeson was one of two survivors of the Iraq war who were told to reenlist in the British Army. When Gleeson joined the Royal Navy for a new start at the age of 25, he was assigned to a special mission to hunt down Osama bin Laden. His life was changed irrevocably when Gleeson and Farrell were in a plane with Gleeson’s dog, Lucky, when it was downed by a missile and both Gleeson and Lucky were killed. Gleeson’s dog was the only survivor of the crash, and the dog’s story became the inspiration behind Farrell’s acclaimed movie Dogs.

In Life in a Day, Farrell shares his story and how his life has been shaped by his friends and family. He writes of life on the front lines with his brother and two friends, war scenes in which his role was pivotal, and tells of his relationship with his father, which was marred by his military service.
