My Take on the Movie
While the movie has a slow pace, and it is sad as well, the The Banshees of Inisherin is worth the time due to beautiful scenery and some amazing acting. The script was well written and Collin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson play so well off of each other bring in a dry pan humor that works. On top of this you get Kerry Condon and Barry Keoghan who also steal the show! The plot of the show is simple, but the movie is far from it. Throughout the movie you are given the opportunity to experience what Ireland was and is like in many of its’ most remote locations. This is a movie you will not want to miss!
