Movie: Calvary

Calvary is a 2014 Irish drama film written and directed by John Michael McDonagh.

Father James is a good priest who is faced with sinister circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous – and often humorous – moral problems, he feels troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary. A dark, yet sometimes funny parable of sacrificial atonement.

(100 mins, Rated R for crude language and human sinfulness.)
