Calvary

Calvary
  • 4 stars
  • 2013
  • Ireland
  • 101 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Michael McDonagh
  • Cast: Brendan Gleeson, Chris O'Dowd, Kelly Reilly, Aidan Gillen

Father James (Gleeson) is a priest, but a good one; wise, witty, kind, non-judgmental. Then he's told that he's to be killed to atone for the sins of his church. McDonagh's film features exceptional performances from a great cast, and a witty and powerful script, far more thoughtful than 2011's lacklustre The Guard.

A Long Way Down

A Long Way Down

  • 2014
  • UK
  • 96 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pascal Chaumeil
  • Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Aaron Paul, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette

When former chat show host Martin (Brosnan) makes his way to a suicide spot, he's disconcerted to find three other people there with the same idea. Chaumeil's adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel initially stumbles but it gets better, with a brilliant performance from Collette and an ultimately fitting balance between humour and darkness.

RiverRuns

The Sea

RiverRuns is a spectacular night of new music and spoken word celebrating the River Tyne in all of its glory, following in the great traditions of local songsmiths and writers and starring eight of the North East's best known singers and spoken word artists: Aidan Clarke, Alfie Crow, Kate Fox, Ben Holland, Sara Dennis, Degna Stone, Jeff Price and Simma.

The show is an exhilarating celebration of the history and stories of the River Tyne, its people, their culture and their heritage and is often humorous, occasionally dark, sometimes irreverent and always entertaining.

A review of the Customs House show by Jake Campbell says it all:

It's hard not to be taken under the spell of the River Tyne. RiverRuns, a celebration of the 'big river' in song and spoken word, certainly makes you think so. In narrative terms, River Runs is a song and verse line for the journey of the River Tyne. From its source in the hills and valleys of Northumberland and the Borders, to its confluence and subsequent journey through various towns till it spills out into the North Sea, this show is concerned with what the river gives and what the river leaves behind.

Personal narratives overlap with common histories; tragedy overlays euphoria. How this translates into a stage show is masterful in its simplicity. Running for just over an hour, including a short interval, RiverRuns is a welcome addition to the canon of mythology that surrounds the great river. There were no props, no sets, no gimmicks: this was simply 8 people connecting with each other and with their audience. I hope this show gets the wider audience it so very much deserves.

The Stag

The Stag
  • 2 stars
  • 2013
  • Ireland
  • 94 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: John Butler
  • Cast: Andrew Scott, Hugh O'Conor, Peter McDonald

Fionnan (O'Conor) is getting married to Ruth (Huberman), but when best man Davin (Scott) organises a stag party that includes Ruth's wild-man brother known simply as The Machine (co-writer MacDonald), disaster predictably strikes. Meek and less than game-changing Irish comedy, depending on silly stereotypes and audience indulgence for men behaving badly.

Eric (O'Connell) is a 19 year old offender who's been moved to an adult facility because of his violent behaviour, but then he meets hardened criminal Neville (Mendelsohn), who happens to be his father. Gut-wrenching and insightful, with excellent performances and an abrasive but sensitive script peppered with welcome moments of humour.
