One thing that neither you nor we had on our lifetime cinematic bingo cards was Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson in The Banshees of Inisherin cast becoming the modern-day equivalent of Laurel and Hardy. It is all down to Martin McDonagh, who also writes and directs both movies, that the Irish actors in 2008’s “In Bruges” and the upcoming “The Banshees of Inisherin” demonstrate chemistry and virtuosic interaction that most nearly resemble the masters of the early 20th century.
Being a McDonagh piece, it is both an exasperating and mortifying comedy, the film opens with a stunning aerial sight of the titular island in Ireland, which is all green beneath a brilliant blue sky, and of course, The Banshees of Inisherin cast’s work cannot be overlooked. In this image, it only rains at night, which, given actual weather patterns in Ireland, placed the movie in a different genre as The Carter Burwell music conjures up ideal times.
We see that Pádraic, played by Farrell in The Banshees of Inisherin cast, is a milk farmer who shares a small house with his sister and appears to call on his old buddy Colm, played by Gleeson, nearly every day at two.
