The Banshees of Inisherin
2022 Rated R
My rating 7.5 out of 10
A movie set in 1923 on a fictional island off the west coast of Ireland. Padriac (Colin Farrel), who lives with his sister, Siobhan and a host of a farm animals, is abruptly left friendless after his bestie, Colm, calls it quits to their lifelong friendship.
Not a complex storyline but complex characters are in this film starring Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Kerry Condon.
The abrupt and severed friendship leaves Padriac, a simple man, a tad astounded. Colm simply says that he doesn't find Padriac interesting anymore and would rather use his time to complete his music composition with his violin. Padriac doesn't quite understand and this leads to some unusual consequences for both of them.
This is a comedy drama. The filming is beautiful and the scenery, clothing, is simply gorgeous. It's a moving art gallery. The acting is phenomenal. Very well filmed and the story line just adds to the artistic value of the entire package.
I enjoyed the film and the dialogue.
This is not a shoot 'em up popcorn movie, it's a drama! So if you are the dude that only likes car chases, bunch of killin', etc., well stay away.
