FILM: BANSHEES OF INISHERIN
Set in rural, coastal Ireland, “The Banshees of Inisherin” centers around two pals Padraic (Colin Farrell), a friendly cow herder, and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), a brooding fiddler. They have been drinking together nearly every afternoon at the local pub for as long as anyone can remember until Colm abruptly declares an end to their diabolical friendship. “I don’t want to be your friend anymore!” Padraic responds with wounded incredulity. How does this witty, brilliantly written and superbly directed film end? You will have to find out for yourself. “The Banshees of Inisherin” is now playing in Bay Area theaters.
