The priest within

Sitting in the confessional one Sunday, an unknown man on the other side of the partition tells Father James that he intends to murder him as revenge for having been sexually abused by a catholic priest as a child. As James gets his affairs in order and prepares to meet his would-be assassin we are given a tour of an eccentric parish consisting of adulterers, arsonists, cannibals and drug-snorting physicians. Combining black humour and religious themes, CALVARY reunites the team behind 2011’s critically acclaimed comedy THE GUARD.
