Tomatometer quote iconFeaturing some of Martin McDonagh’s finest work and a pair of outstanding lead performances, The Banshees of Inisherin is a finely crafted feel-bad treat.

Stefan Pape quote iconDark Irish comedy has language, violence, drinking, smoking.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconIt certainly won’t be for all viewers -- heck, even most -- as things unfold. But there’s no denying it’s a mesmerizing tale told well, with excellent performances all around. Expect lots of award love to come this film’s way once that season begins.
