Thurles Film Stars Unite In “The Banshees of Inisherin”.

While only released officially this month, [October 21st, 2022] the film, “The Banshees of Inisherin” [Runtime: 113 minutes], is already available, two days later, here to view in Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Opening this afternoon to rave reviews; three of the film’s well known stars, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon and Pat Shortt; are no strangers to Thurles town, with the latter two named, both born and educated here in the Cathedral town.

Directed by Martin McDonagh, [“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”]; the story tells of a pair of lifelong friends, on a remote Irish island, (set on the Irish Arran Islands), who find themselves at an awkward period in their relationship, when one of them no longer wants to be friends with the other.

Pádraic (played by Colin Farrell), latter an affable and kind man living on a fictional remote island known as Inisherin, suddenly has his world seriously shaken when his former close friend Colm (latter played by Brendan Gleeson), chooses to cut off their previously enjoyed, lifelong friendship.
What begins as a minor squabble between both of these former old friends, soon sends shockwaves throughout their small close-knit community, thus causing everyone, from Pádraic’s sister Siobhán (Played by Thurles born Kerry Condon) to the local parish priest, to inquire as to the cause of Colm’s sudden active hatred.

Well worth viewing at the IMC cinemas here in the Thurles Shopping Centre.
