Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell made quite a pair in 2008's In Bruges. The Irish actors were a perfect match for Martin McDonagh's pitch-black comedy about assassins hiding out in the Belgium town after a job gone wrong. While Farrell worked with McDonagh again in Seven Psychopaths (2012), Gleeson hasn't worked with him since. But the trio has reunited for another tale of a troubled partnership in a small European town.
The Banshees of Inisherin starts with a break-up. Colm (Gleeson) tells his longtime pal Padriac (Farrell) that their friendship is over. But things aren't so simple in a town where everyone knows each other. Padriac pushes for reconciliation, but Colm issues an ultimatum: "If you don't stop bothering me... I'll [cut] one of my fingers off, and give that finger to you." While the trailer doesn't reveal if he goes to such violent extremes, anyone who's seen one of McDonagh's films knows he's willing to go there.
Filmed on location on islands on the west coast of Ireland, the movie also features Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan. So don't be surprised if you need the subtitles for this movie.
The Banshees of Inisherin premieres at the Venice Film Festival in September. A limited release will follow in the U.S. in October.
