The Banshees of Inisherin

The Banshees of Inisherin (15)

Director: Martin McDonagh/Ireland,USA/2022/114mins

By the director who brought us ‘In Bruges and ‘Three Billboards  Outside Ebbing Missouri’, and reuniting Brenda Gleeson and Colin Farrell, this film traces the tortured break up of two best pals in remote rural Ireland with all the anguish and gravity of the most charged romantic melodrama. The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw gave it a glowing review and wrote, “As a study of male loneliness and swallowed anger it is weirdly compelling and often very funny”.
