First trailer: “The Banshees of Inisherin”
(FASTNEWS | IRELAND) – The first trailer has been released for Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin,” a project that sees him re-teaming with his two “In Bruges” stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.
Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland, the story follows lifelong friends – the chipper Padraic (Colin Farrell) and the curmudgeonly Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm unexpectedly puts an abrupt 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.
Padraic’s repeated efforts, however, only strengthen his former friend’s resolve, and when Colm delivers a desperate ultimatum, events swiftly escalate, with shocking consequences.
“The Banshees of Inisherin” premieres at the Venice Film Festival next month and will hit theaters on October 21st.
