the banshees of inisherin


We watched this movie on HBO Max last night.

It recently won a Golden Globe in the Comedy division, which is baffling.  Described by critics as a “slow and sad” story (after we watched it I realized that description was 100% accurate), we didn’t know what to expect.

Set on an isolated Irish island in 1923, the scenery is breathtakingly gorgeous.  The acting was terrific, the story unusual, the dialogue riveting.  We never knew what was going to happen next.

Just beware: the theme is “loneliness can make you crazy”.  And it seems almost everyone on Inisherin is lonely.
