CALVARY’s Father James (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.

What the Critics Are Saying:
“Brendan Gleeson gives a performance of monumental soul in John Michael McDonagh’s masterful follow-up to ‘The Guard.'”
–Justin Chang, Variety

“Philosophically dense, emotionally powerful with a challenging narrative, Calvary is an examination of religion in a world increasingly out-of-tune with, and without need for, the institution.”
–Brian Tallerico, Film Threat
