From the Oscar-winning writer/director, Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, In Bruges).
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland during the Irish civil war, The Banshees of Inisherin follows lifelong friends Padraic and Colm, who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Padraic, aided by his sister Siobhan and troubled young islander Dominic, endeavours 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.
With a powerhouse Irish cast and exceptional writer/director McDonagh, The Banshees of Inisherin, revels in the tension of the unknown in this captivating story of an elongated friendship break-up.
