Colin Farrell set to be honoured for 'career-best' Banshees of Inisherin

Colin Farrell will be honoured with a special award for his “career-best” performance in The Banshees of Inisherin at Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Farrell, 46, will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award for his work in the Martin McDonagh hit film in January. Festival chief Harold Matzner said: “Colin Farrell reunites with Brendan Gleeson and director Martin McDonagh in the masterful comedy The Banshees of Inisherin.

“Farrell gives a memorable performance as Padraic, a sweet-souled Irish farmer trying to save his lifelong friendship. For this career-best performance, we are honoured to present the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor, to Colin Farrell.”
