“Sligo, Ireland. In the confessional, Father James (Brendon Gleeson) learns that one of his congregation, who was abused by another priest, intends to kill him in a week’s time. The priest is visited by his daughter (Kelly Reilly), who has recently attempted suicide, and deals with a range of locals who have differing reasons to hate the Catholic Church. On the strength of only two films, director John Michael McDonagh (THE GUARD) and Gleeson are a director/star team on a par with Ford/Wayne, Fellini/Mastroianni or Scorsese/De Niro. CALVARY is gripping, moving, funny and troubling, down to an uncompromising yet uncynical finish”—Kim Newman, Empire. R. 101 Min.
