The new film of the “In Bruges” team became the favorite of the Venice Film Festival.
Returning to the Venice Film Festival after director Martin McDonagh’s very successful film “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” of 2017, “The Banshees of Inisherin” received a standing ovation from the audience for 13 minutes at the festival where it made its world premiere.
Movie stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson were in the audience along with McDonagh. Applause and cheers for the team that worked together in the 2008 movie “In Bruges” delayed the screening of “Don’t Worry Darling”, the most controversial movie of the year. Thus, “The Banshees of Inisherin” became the most acclaimed film of the Venice Film Festival. We will hear the name of the movie a lot during the upcoming awards season.
“The Banshees of Inisherin”, shot by Martin McDonagh in his hometown of Ireland, covers the events that took place in the shadow of the Irish Civil War in 1923; It chronicles the town-wide tensions of the conflict between the easygoing, friendly Pádraic (Farrell) and his cranky friend Colms (Gleeson), who inexplicably turns his back on Pádraic.
