Set on a remote island off the west coast of Ireland in 1934, The Cripple of Inishmaan is a strange comic tale by the director of Three Billboards Near Ebbing, Missouri, in the great tradition of Irish storytelling, and based on a historical incident. As word arrives on Inishmaan that the Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is coming to the Aran Islands to film Man of Aran, later a famous documentary, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life.
