The Lore of “The Banshees of Inisherin” – A Distinctly Irish Tale on Film

If you were a fan of 2008’s In Bruges, you may be pleased to learn that The Banshees of Inisherin provides the same amount of black humor, chaos, and general shenanigans between Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Once again, under the writing and directing tutelage of Martin McDonagh – who grew his teeth as a playwright – the exchanges between Farrell, who plays the dimwitted yet loyal Pádraic, and Gleeson, playing the intent yet fickle Colm, are dramatic and brutal, biting and tender, and often terrifying.
