Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ follows lifelong friends Pádraic and Colm , who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Pádraic, aided by his sister Siobhán and troubled young islander Dominic, endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. When Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.

Martin McDonagh

The son of Irish emigrants, he was born in London in 1970. He began his career at the Royal National Theatre with ‘The Pillowman’ in 2003. He wrote a trilogy of plays set in the village of Calway (‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’, ‘A Skull in Connemara’ and ‘The Lonesome West’), and another trilogy set in the Aran Islands (‘The Cripple of Inishman’, ‘The Lieutenant of Inishmore’ and ‘The Banshees of Inisheer’). In film, in 2006 he won the Oscar for directing the short film ‘Six Shooter’, and he made his feature film debut with ‘In Bruges’ (2008). Later he directed ‘Seven Psychopaths’ (2012) and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ (2017), which won two Oscars. ‘The Banshees of Inisherin’ scooped this year’s Volpi Cup for Best Actor for Colin Farrell at the Venice Film Festival.
