Five Barry Keoghan films to watch this weekend

In honour of the actor’s Oscar nomination, we’re rounding up some of Barry Keoghan’s finest films to curl up in front of this weekend.

Though he may not have brought home the title of Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his work on Banshees of Inisherin from the 95th Academy Awards next month, Barry Keoghan has certainly done the parish proud.

It was recently announced that Keoghan has landed a dream assignment in the form of a Billy The Kid project with director Bart Layton and producer Ed Guiney. Speaking to Deadline, Keogh said: “We’ve seen many versions of Billy the Kid on screen before. My interest was in trying to tell a version that breaks from the facade of that cool, calm, and collected gunslinger Billy the Kid that we’re all used to seeing. I wanted to humanize him in a way.”

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up five of Barry Keoghan’s best films to watch over the course of the weekend.

Calm with Horses (2020)

Set in rural Ireland, this film follows Douglas ‘Arm’ Armstrong as he becomes the feared right hand man for the drug-dealing Devers clan, whilst also trying to be a good father to his autistic five-year-old son, Jack. Keoghan plays the role of Dymphna, Arm’s best friend, and the family’s unpredictable protégé, Dymphna.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer (2017)

Appearing alongside his Banshees co-star Colin Farrell in this thrilling horror film, Keoghan plays the role of an awkward teenage boy, whose taken under the wing of a surgeon (Farrell). Things take a turn for the worse when it transpires that Keoghan’s character has a sinister agenda of his own.

Dunkirk (2017)

Set during World War II, soldiers from the British Empire, Belgium and France try to evacuate from the town of Dunkirk during an arduous battle with German forces. Appearing alongside Harry Styles, Fionn Whitehead, Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Barry Keoghan plays the role of George Mills.

The Green Knight (2021)

An adventure/drama starring Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander and our very own Keoghan, The Green Knight follows King Arthur’s headstrong nephew as he embarks on a daring quest to confront the Green Knight, a mysterious giant who appears at Camelot. Risking his head, he sets off on an epic adventure to prove himself before his family and court.

The Batman (2022)

Now, while Keoghan doesn’t make an appearance until the final moments of the film — and even at that it’s a very brief sighting — that maniacal, quintessential Joker laugh is enough to send a shiver down your spine. Once you’ve watched the film, don’t forget to check out this deleted scene to see the full effect of Keoghan’s iteration of the Joker.
