In his follow-up to The Guard, writer and director John Michael McDonagh returns with a superbly written, darkly funny and powerfully moving mystery set in a sleepy coastal village in County Sligo, Ireland. Anchored by a magnificent central performance from McDonagh’s Guard star Brendan Gleeson (The Grand Seduction), Calvary focuses on local parish priest Father James (Gleeson), who, after receiving a death threat from one of his parishioners during confession, spends what he believes to be the last week of his life pondering whether he’s made any difference at all to his community.
