CALVARY Comedy/drama (15) 2014 100 mins
CALVARY’s Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson) is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral – and often comic – problems, he feels sinister and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary. (c) Fox Searchlight
Father James is a good man intent on making the world a better place, but he is continually shocked and saddened by the spiteful and confrontational inhabitants of his small country town in County Sligo. During confession a parishioner threatens that he will kill Lavelle the next Sunday, and as the week progresses the forces of darkness begin to close in around him.
A rich, captivating, character drama with soulful performances and hailed as a ‘delicious whodunnit’ by The Guardian. The film is considered an important achievement for Irish cinema and sees a second successful collaboration between director John Michael McDonagh and lead actor Gleeson (their first was 2011’s The Guard). Strong cast, including Gleeson, Reilly and Chris O’Dowd. A truly memorable new film which generates great atmosphere and will have audiences on the edge of their seats.
‘…hats off to Gleeson, for a career-best – an authentic, heart-and-soul performance’ ‘…a wickedly funny black comedy’ Time Out
‘destined for classic status, just may be the best Irish film ever made’ Total Film
