Official Selection Sundance Film Festival, Berlinale Ecumenical Jury Prize winner


A darkly comedic drama from John Michael McDonagh (THE GUARD), international film sensation CALVARY follows the story of Father James, a priest driven by spiritual integrity whose world is turned upside down when his life is threatened during confessional. Brendan Gleeson (THE GUARD and IN BRUGES) brilliantly inhabits the fascinating role of a good priest tormented by a cynical, spiteful community. As he continues to minster to the towns lost souls in the week leading up to his threatened murder, he struggles to reconcile himself with God’s will.
