Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson’s new movie receives rave reviews

Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson’s new flick ‘The Banshees of Inisherin‘ is receiving rave reviews from early viewers.

The film, which is set to hit Irish screens next month, has already received an Oscar nod and a 13-minute standing ovation at Venice Film Festival earlier this week.

Colin and Brendan are also joined by rising star, Barry Keoghan, who plays the role of a young islander named Dominic.

The film is directed by Martin McDonagh, who previously worked with both actors as the director of In Bruges. So, it’s no surprise that the flick has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Filmed in the Aran Islands during the pandemic, the film tells the story of two life-long friends whose fallout leads to shocking consequences for their small island community.

The official synopsis for the film reads: “Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, The Banshees Of Inisherin follows lifelong friends Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (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), endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer.

To find out what has the public raving about it for yourself, The Banshees Of Inisherin is set to be released in cinemas on Friday, 21 October.
