An excellent movie. Brendan Gleeson player the role of the priest to perfection.
The film is quietly excellent, writing, editing, direction, acting, the works. Gleeson is one of my favourites - fell in love with him during the screening of the The Guard. My one question left unanswered from Calvary is the final scene where the priest's daughter visits the murderer of her father in jail. Why does she go there? What is her relationship with the killer of her father? I have missed something quite vital to the story. Can someone fill me in? Many thanks if you can.
Good movie. Good performances.
Good versus evil on a microcosmic scale. Brendan Gleeson is bloody marvelous as the priest who continues to go about his duties even after he's been told he's going to die 'Sunday week.'
This film is utterly captivating. You'll be thinking about it for a long time after the lights come up.
Really well acted and interesting story. Plenty of wierd characters brings some odd charm to this film.
Easily the best film I've seen this year. Please give Brendan Gleeson the Oscar! Very heavy topic, well done.
