'The Banshees of Inisherin' Movie Review

Martin McDonagh's new film brilliantly explores the meaning of friendship and features award-worthy performances from Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Set in the small Irish town of Inisherin during the Irish Civil War, Pádraic Súilleabháin (Colin Farrell) discovers one day to his surprise that his best friend and drinking buddy Colm Doherty (Brendan Gleeson) no longer wants anything to do with him, with no other reason given. Broken hearted, Pádraic confides in his sister, Siobhán (Kerry Condon), who encourages him not to give up on their friendship. Pádraic tries to befriend Colm again, or at least find out why he no longer wants to be his friend. But Colm will not change his mind and tells Pádraic that if he ever speaks to him again, he will cut off his own fingers. What follows is a war between the two men, one that the town of Inisherin will not soon forget.
