Searchlight Pictures has released the first trailer for Martin McDonagh‘s eagerly awaited new film THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN, which will have its World Premiere at the 79th Venice International Film Festival on 5 September 2022.
The film stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, who reunite with McDonagh from IN BRUGES, as well as Kerry Condon, and Barry Keoghan.
Set on an island off the west coast of Ireland, THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN follows two lifelong friends, Padraic (Colin Farrell) and Colm (Brendan Gleeson), who find themselves at an impasse when Colm abruptly decides to end their friendship. With the support of his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon), who along with the local policeman’s son Dominic (Barry Keoghan) has her own qualms within the small island community, a confused and devastated Padraic attempts to reignite their relationship. But when Colm delivers a shocking ultimatum in order to crystallise his intention, events start to escalate to fractious heights.
The key crew include cinematographer and regular McDonagh collaborator Ben Davis, costume designer Eimer Ni Mhaoldomhnaigh, production designer Mark Tildesley, and editor Mikkel E.G. Nielsen. Carter Burwell is composing the score. McDonagh and his frequent collaborators Graham Broadbent and Peter Czernin of Blueprint Pictures are producing for Searchlight Pictures and Film4.
The film was shot on location on Inishmore and Achill islands on the west coast of Ireland.
