The Banshees of Inisherin

“The Banshees of Inisherin” is a quirky Irish movie that tells the story of two men whose friendship comes to an end because the older friend is tired of the younger. The younger friend does not understand his decision and tries to change the other’s mind. When I say quirky, I could also say a bit weird. The story takes place on a remote island where there does not seem to be much industry other than fishing and farming. The older friend’s method of trying to keep the other man away is strange. The dialogue is interesting and the two leads, Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, are excellent. This is a character study of simple people. Made by the same people who made “In Burges” a few years ago. The critics have raved about this film, especially the actors. I liked it but the film is not for everyone’s tastes.
