Tuesday Night Movie: “The Banshees of Inisherin”

For our next Tuesday Night Movie, we’ll be screening The Banshees Of Inisherin.

Written and directed by Martin McDonagh, the film is about two lifelong friends who find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends their relationship, with alarming consequences for both of them. It is currently nominated for nine Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Direction, Best Actor (Colin Farrell), Best Supporting Actor (Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan), Best Supporting Actress (Kerry Condon), and Best Original Screenplay.

Deadline Hollywood wrote that the film is “a simple and diabolical tale of a friendship’s end shot through with bristling humor and sudden moments of startling violence.” In a review for Variety, Guy Lodge said, “What begins as a doleful, anecdotal narrative becomes something closer to mythic in its rage and resonance.” And The Hollywood Reporter called the film “a ruminative ensemble piece that expertly balances the tragicomic with the macabre, inhabiting territory adjacent to McDonagh’s stage work yet also sweepingly cinematic.”

The film is rated R, and runs 1 hour, 55 minutes. It will be screened with English subtitles for the hard of hearing.

This screening is free and open to the public, with no registration required.
