Father James must continue to comfort his daughter and his own parishioners in the midst of a troubling threat on his own life.
Intense and dark at times, and slow and compassionate at others, Calvary is a soulful, humorous, and slow-burning drama that proves a great showcase for Brendan Gleeson. Calvary trudges along, but it’s a compelling study of broken people, of faith, and of what exactly we’re willing to die for.
Calvary is rated R for language and brief violence.
