The Banshees of Inishirin, is a drama set beautifully in Ireland, starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Colin looks overly tanned for Ireland, but ever handsome! And, Brendan of The Guard fame looks like you’d best leave him be.
Decision to Leave, Director Park Chan-wook’s new subtitled ‘neo-noir romantic thriller‘ looks heart-stopping! Filmed in S. Korea, it stars Tang Wei and Park Hae-il.
