Calvary Trailer Arrives
Brendan Gleeson is a turbulent priest

10 December 2013  |  Written by James White

Brendan Gleeson and The Guard's writer-director John Michael McDonagh have reunited for Calvary, another tale of a tortured soul but one who's a good bit more morally sound. The first trailer for the film has arrived online. 

As opposed to the drunken, corrupt cop of The Guard, the new dark comedy will follow Gleeson’s Father James Lavelle, a priest with a good heart whose mission in life is to make the world a better place. But he’s constantly disappointed by the hateful, argumentative and downright bitter attitudes of the other inhabitants in his small county town. Events take a turn into even darker territory when his life is threatened during confession…

McDonagh has gathered quite the cast around his main man, with Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Riley, Aidan Gillen, Dylan Moran and Domhnall Gleeson among those who populate the tiny location. From the looks of this, it’s definitely along the same lines, with plenty of solid performers on show in service of an acerbic, thoughtful script. Calvary will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and then arrive here on April 11.
