Story


Father James is a good priest, driven by spiritual integrity. One day in confession, an unseen man tells James that he's going to kill him precisely because he's done nothing wrong. Given a week to make his peace with God, James ministers to sundry lost souls-visits that double as a guided tour of suspects. His preparation for death is further complicated by the arrival of his daughter, who has recently attempted suicide.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..anchored by yet another incredible performance from Brendan Gleeson, Calvary is the rare film that shows the intricacies of religion without becoming pedantic in the process..”
by Matt Goldberg [Collider]
“..Calvary boasts a sharp sense of place and a deep love of language. It's puckish and playful, mercurial and clever, rattling with gallows laughter as it paints a portrait of an Irish community that is at once intimate and alienated..”
by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]
“..representing a considerable leap in thematic scope and craft for McDonagh..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
