Martin McDonagh’s film is a macabre black comedy of toxic male pride and wounded male feelings. Colin Farrell plays Padraic, a dairyman who lives with his unmarried sister. Every day promptly at two o’clock, goofy, good-natured Padraic calls for the guy he considers his best friend in all the world, Colm (Brendan Gleeson), so that they can go to the pub together.
One day, a terrible thing happens: Colm simply decides he doesn’t want to be friends with Padraic anymore. Martin McDonagh lyrically whips every incident in the film into a mordantly funny dark fable about men’s innate inability to work together for the betterment of society at large.
A must-see following its multiple sell-outs in the Autumn & Winter seasons.
