“Two lifelong friends find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends their relationship, with alarming consequences for both of them.”

Director: Martin McDonagh
Writer: Martin McDonagh
Staring: Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, Barry Keoghan, David Pearse
Release Date: October 21, 2022

You are telling me that we get Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell in a movie together directed by Martin McDonagh? You are telling me that we are getting a reunion of In Bruges (2008)? Oh hell yea, I am in!

Banshees Of Inisherin (2022) is a dark comedy set in Ireland. I mean, that might be enough to watch the movie itself, right?

Padriac (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson) are lifelong friends but all of a sudden there is a major impasse which affects their relationship. Colm is upset with Padriac about something, but we do not know what. The trailer for Banshees Of Inisherin puts a spotlight on the interpersonal battle and bleak comedic interactions the two men share.

Farrell and Gleeson and working with McDonagh for the second time on a major motion picture. It is Farrell’s third project with McDonagh. The pair also teamed up for Seven Psychopaths (2012). It appears like McDonagh has his stock of actors he enjoys working with. Farrell appearing in his third, Gleeson appearing in his second, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson has been in a pair (Seven Psychopaths & Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)). The tight-knit group of performers has let to a lot of success for McDonagh. Every movie he has down has resulted in positive reviews. He nearly took home the Oscar in 2018 for Best Picture with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and was nominated in 2009 for Original Screenplay with In Bruges.

McDonagh earned his Oscar win in his first nomination with this short from Six Shooter, which stars Brendan Gleeson. I did not know that such a film existed, and now it is on my YouTube watch later list.

Should also not that The Banshees Of Inisherin also stars young up-and-comer Barry Keoghan. The Irish actor got his recognition and big break from his performance in The Killing Of A Sacred Deer (2017), which also stared Colin Farrell. This duo also showed up earlier this year in The Batman (2022), but I am willing to bet that they did not cross paths seeing how Keoghan was a post-credit scene with just Robert Pattinson’s Batman.

The Banshees Of Inisherin has a setting and mood that is immediately recognizable. The movie is going to coat you with a dampness of comedic negativity, so much so that it will feel like you just walked out of an Irish rain storm. If you enjoy movies that are heavy on talking and quickly crafted verbal jousts, then I am going to venture a good guess that you will enjoy Banshees Of Inisherin.

The Banshees Of Inisherin comes on out on October 21st.
