Hollywood actor Colin Farrell received a thunderous 13-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival premiere of The Banshees of Inisherin, a film by Oscar winning director Martin McDonagh.
Colin Farrell gets a sensational 13-minute standing ovation at Venice Film Festival 2022 for The Banshees of Inisherin
According to Variety, "this is the longest and loudest reception for any film to debut on the Lido this season, at least based on the ever so slightly unscientific applause meter. McDonagh and stars Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon hugged each other throughout the ovation and walked down from the mezzanine to the orchestra."
“The film tells the off-beat story of two best buddies (Farrell and Gleeson) who abruptly end their friendship, a dissolution that has a seismic impact on the rural community in which they live.” The 46-year-old Irish actor reunites with Brendan Gleeson and McDonagh in the forthcoming drama.
