Kerry Condon talks about her Oscar nomination, taking her younger brother as a date, growing up in Ireland, wanting to be an actress as a kid and going to the premiere of THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK in Dublin, giving a business card to the director as he was getting in the car, and Leonardo DiCaprio stealing a cigarette from her at the Chateau Marmont.
THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN has won three major prizes at the Golden Globes’ comeback ceremony in Los Angeles. The film took home best comedy or musical film and best screenplay, as well as best comedy actor for its star, Irish actor Colin Farrell. I never expect my films to find an audience, and when they do it’s shocking for me,” Farrell said.
THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN is now available to stream from home. The film follows the complicated friendship of Pádraic, played by Colin Farrell, and Colm, played by Brendan Gleeson, in 1920s Ireland. The two men were best friends until, suddenly, Colm breaks off contact with Pádraic with the desire to end their friendship. Naturally, Pádraic is initially dumbfounded, thinking it is all a joke. That is, until Colm says each time Pádraic speaks to him, he will cut off one of his own fingers. Pádraic remains skeptical until fingers start getting thrown at his front door following his interactions with Colm.
THE BANSHEES OF INISHERIN actress Kerry Condon will receive the distinguished performance award at the SCAD Oct 22. Condon launched her stage career with celebrated performances in McDonagh’s plays THE LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE and THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN and also appeared in his Academy Award-winning feature THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI.
