It might’ve been one of the best movies of 2022, but The Banshees of Inisherin, writer-director Martin McDonagh’s film starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, is becoming one of the most talked-about films of the year, thanks in part to its big night at the 2023 Golden Globes. The dark comedy took home three awards during the ceremony, including Best Screenplay, Best Picture – Musical or Comedy, and Best Actor – Musical or Comedy for Farrell’s performance.
“Martin McDonagh, I owe you so much, man,” Farrell said during his Golden Globes acceptance speech. “Fourteen years ago, you put me in work with Brandan Gleeson, my dance partner, and you changed the trajectory of my life forever in ways that I, begrudgingly, will be grateful to you for the rest of my days.”
The next day, the film scored a record-making five nods for the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards — making it an Oscars frontrunner.
“Both a comedy and a tragedy — one that substitutes Irish wit and irony for the Greeks’ gods and monsters — The Banshees of Inisherin somehow feels ancient; it takes place in 1923, not coincidentally when Ireland was embroiled in its own Civil War, yet you’d wear that it was adapted from a fable scribbled centuries ago,” David Fear wrote of McDonagh’s film in RollingStone‘s movie review.
Following its big night at the Golden Globes, here’s how you can stream The Banshees of Inisherin online.

The Banshees of Inisherin: Plot, Cast, Runtime, Rating
McDonagh’s award-winning drama is set in 1923 on the island of Inisherin, and centers on two friends (and a mini pet donkey you might’ve heard about named Jenny), Pádraic Súilleabháin (Farrell) and Colm Doherty (Gleeson), who have a bit of a sudden falling out. The reasons aren’t immediately clear, and spoilers aside, moviegoers will have to watch the movie to find out what happens next.
According to the film’s official synopsis, “Two lifelong friends find themselves at an impasse when one abruptly ends their relationship, with alarming consequences for both of them.” We’ll leave it at that.
Unlike many of the award-season contenders, The Banshees of Inisherin clocks in under the two-hour mark with a runtime of 1 hour, 53 minutes and is rated R.
