Conflict between two friends arise when one of them abruptly ends their friendship with alarming consequences for both of them.
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN follows lifelong friends Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an end to their friendship. A stunned Padraic, aided by his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon) and troubled young islander Dominic (Barry Keoghan), endeavours to repair the relationship, refusing to take no for an answer. But Padraic's repeated efforts only strengthen his former friend’s resolve and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.
The Banshees of Inisherin had its world premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival on 5 September 2022, where it received a fifteen-minute standing ovation from the audience, the longest of that year's festival.
It also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival that same month and will screen as the opening night film of the 31st Philadelphia Film Festival on October 19, 2022.
