The Banshees of Inisherin

British-Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh delivers his best film to date with this simple but resonant and raucously funny tale of feuding friends, produced by the UK’s Film4 and Blueprint Pictures. Rural Ireland’s rugged landscapes provide reprieve from the melancholy and menace that ripples throughout, while actors Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson are surely bound for awards season.
