The Banshees of Inisherin

The newest pitch-black comedy from Academy Award-winning writer-director Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards, In Bruges), The Banshees of Inisherin follows lifelong friends Padraic and Colm (played by In Bruges’ Colin Farrell & Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Padraic, aided by his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon) and troubled young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan), endeavors to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Padraic’s repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend’s resolve and, when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate with shocking consequences.

Winner of Best Actor (Colin Farrell) and Best Screenplay at the 79th Venice Film Festival.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

"What makes it work so well, aside from a rollickingly funny but never smirky McDonagh script that arms every member of its small ensemble with killer moments, is the reuniting of In Bruges’s two leads, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson."
Phil de Semlyen, Time Out
"Closer than any of his previous films to the barbed, intimate lyricism of McDonagh’s work as a playwright, and more deeply, sorrowfully felt to boot.
