Calvary (19-Jan-2014)

Director: John Michael McDonagh

Writer: John Michael McDonagh

Keywords: Drama

A well-intentioned priest is faced with troubling discontent within his parish.

Good-natured Catholic priest James Lavelle is visited by a parishioner during confessional, told a story of sexual abuse suffered at the hands of another priest and informed that he will be killed next Sunday. James does his best to continue on with his work, lending an ear to the oft-disquieting troubles faced by fellow members of his community, all while facing his own mortality as a likely confrontation with his would-be killer draws near.
