The Banshees of Inisherin
Tie up your donkey and come on down to the pub to grab a pint with the Reel Film Chronicles as we discuss the The Banshees of Inisherin. Set on the… let’s call them “sunny” shores of a remote Irish island in the early 1920s, Banshees follows the aftermath of the fallout between two longtime friends. This deteriorating friendship sets into motion a darkly comedic series of events involving beatings, destruction of property, and unnecessary amputations. Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell reunite with writer/director Martin McDonagh for another tragicomic outing, fulfilling the destinies foretold by the Fates after the success of In Bruges back in the mist-shrouded days of yore in the ancient past of 2008. Can the trio recapture the magic they first conjured up 14 years ago? Listen in to find out if Banshees of Inisherin was blessed with the luck of the Irish or if its demise was presaged as though by the mythical creature from whence the film takes its very name.
