Martin McDonagh

The Banshees of Inisherin

114' - 2022 - Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Martin McDonagh Composer: Carter Burwell With: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, Barry Keoghan
Oscar winner Martin McDonagh ships the team from In Bruges to his homeland Ireland for The Banshees of Inisherin. Set against the beautiful landscape, a tragicomic character study unfolds about the rift between two old friends.
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, The Banshees of Inisherin follows lifelong friends Pádraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Pádraic, aided by his sister Siobhán (Kerry Condon) and troubled young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan), endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Pádraic’s repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend’s resolve and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.
"Seemingly out of nowhere, a man cuts off ties with his best friend. (…) For his long-awaited return to feature directing, McDonagh’s going back to Ireland and back to basics, erring toward the acidic banter of In Bruges for his latest seriocomic portrait of stunted masculinity." - Little White Lies
