Reel Theology: Banshees of Inisherin
Nominated for 9 Academy Awards, Banshees charts the end of a lifelong friendship of two Irishmen on the fictional island of Inisherim. A deepening chasm grows between them that turns former friends into outright enemies. Dire consequences result. The question is whether the film is a true portrayal of human nature gone awry that is indeed, unsettling. Brendan Gleeson and Colin Ferrell turn in stellar performances. Discussion and refreshments will follow.
