Calvary, DVD  DVD


Darkly comic Irish thriller starring Brendan Gleeson.

Gleeson plays Father James, who is the local clergyman of a rural Irish parish.

During confession one Sunday, an unseen local informs Father James of his plan of killing him as a way of gaining retrobution for abuse he suffered as a young boy at the hands of another Catholic priest.

Left with only seven days to make his peace, James visits those within his community while trying to track down his potential killer.

Through his exchanges with the locals, which include a cuckolded butcher (Chris O'Dowd), a wealthy businessman (Dylan Moran) and an atheistic doctor (Aidan Gillen), James realises that the institution to which he has dedicated his life is becoming obsolete, causing him to doubt the validity of his faith...
