(2022) (Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: A 1920s-era man must contend with his best friend no longer wanting anything to do with him in their small island town.
It's 1923 and Pádraic Súilleabháin (COLIN FARRELL) is a single man who lives with his sister, Siobhan Súilleabháin (KERRY CONDON), on the small island of Inisherin off the coast of Ireland. Pádraic is a pleasant, unassuming man who enjoys the company of his pet miniature donkey and local songwriter and violin player Colm Doherty (BRENDAN GLEESON).
That is, until Colm suddenly decides he no longer wants to be friends with Pádraic, a development that befuddles the latter and confuses the likes of young adult Dominic Kearney (BARRY KEOGHAN) who lives with his abusive father, Peadar (GARY LYDON), the local cop.
As Pádraic tries to get to the bottom of Colm's abrupt termination of their friendship - that includes going to extreme ends to make sure Pádraic understands his ultimatum -- it's unclear how things will play out, especially as an older seer, Mrs. McCormick (SHEILA FLITTON), predicts tragedy will strike the island.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Some older teens might have an interest.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For language throughout, some violent content and brief graphic nudity.
