Check Out the Trailer of the Banshees of Inisherin
Well, the trailer of The Banshees of Inisherin was released in August 2022 and it seems quite off the wall. The trailer directly opens with the conflict between Padraic and Colm who were known to be friends forever.
They have such an amazing friendship bond which is known by the entire town. The reason for such drastic change is not revealed yet and keeps the mystery in the plot of the film. But whatever it is, this change in their relationship seems to throw off Padraic as Colm keeps pushing him away.
The suspense will surely kill you because it will constantly ask you what exactly happened and unfortunately we will not get to know until we watch the movie. So let’s just hope that the wait is worth watching the movie.
The narrative of The Banshees of Inisherin is also quite interesting. Despite being a drama-comedy, there’s a constant air of suspense and thrill, which is only elevated by the mystical landscape of Ireland.
There is an underlying tone of humour and eccentric behaviours from the characters, including some aggressive moments.
The rest of the plot seems to be under wraps, but it surely looks dramatic, placed in the foreground of the volatile socio-political setting of the story, all of which looks beautifully balanced with the scenic setting of the Irish countryside.
