CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of appears on The Eddie Volkman Show with Hannah B on WSSR-FM (Star 96.7 Joliet, Illinois) on October 28th, reviewing the wide release of “The Banshees of Inisherin,” an Irish-themed film featuring Colin Ferrell and Brendon Gleeson. Currently in theaters.

In 1923, on a remote island off the Ireland mainland, Padraic (Ferrell) and Colm (Gleeson) are expected to be at their local pub at 2pm as usual. Except Colm wants nothing to do with Paddy … ever again. It turns out that he is bored with his friend and never wants to talk to him again, which perplexes Paddy to no end. He tries to get his sister Siobhan (Kerry Condon) involved, but she has issues of her own. As the silence escalates, Colm makes threats if Paddy doesn’t leave him alone. This situation in their friendship is the talk of the entire small island.
