Sometimes, I put off watching a well-made, lauded movie until I absolutely have to. (Basically, until it pulls the prize for best musical or comedy picture at the Golden Globes, or something along those impressive lines.)
I can no longer ignore Irish tragicomedy The Banshees of Inisherin, which just scooped up that very award and two more — writer and director Martin McDonagh won for best screenplay, and star Colin Farrell claimed the Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy picture.
Banshees, set on a remote island off the coast of Ireland in the 1920s, captures a sudden rift between two lifelong friends and everything that follows. The film stars Brendan Gleeson opposite Farrell (both also appeared in McDonagh’s debut film In Bruges).
A quick warning: In addition to supplying genuine laughs, this movie goes to some surprisingly dark places.
Below, you’ll find how to stream The Banshees of Inisherin, along with some other winners from the Globes. Time to put a pause on that reality season and take in some prestige.
