Calvary

Brendan Gleeson delivers a towering performance in this "immensely powerful" (Hollywood Reporter) film about a priest in a small Irish village who hears a particularly disturbing confession--one in which an unseen parishioner vows to murder the priest in a week. Writer/director John Michael McDonagh (who also directed Gleeson in 'The Guard') makes a potent statement about faith and spirituality in an atheistic world as the priest comes to terms with the seriousness of the threat--and how he plans to deal with it. "Terrifically entertaining...Gleeson gives a performance of monumental soul" (Variety). Co-starring Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran, Isaach de Bankole, M. Emmet Walsh, Marie-Josee Croze, Domhnall Gleeson, David Wilmot, Gary Lydon, Killian Scott, Orla O'Rourke, Owen Sharpe, David McSavage, Michael Og Lane and Mark O'Halloran. Written and directed by John Michael McDonaugh.
