Calvary

Calvary
  • 4 stars
  • 2013

  • 101 min

  • 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.

Half of a Yellow Sun

  • 2013
  • Nigeria/UK
  • 111 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Biyi Bandele
  • Cast: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose

The story of two sisters in 60s Nigeria, Olanna (Newton) and Kainene (Rose), attempting to assert their independence as their nation seeks to do the same. The adaptation of Adichie's novel looks beautiful but is crippled by Bandele's use of archival footage to explain the situation, which kills the narrative flow and gives the story a soap-ish quality.

  • Directed by: Steven Knight
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson (voice), Andrew Scott (voice)

Ivan Locke (Hardy) is a Welsh construction manager driving his BMV down the motorway, dealing with various professional and personal crises as he does so. An entire film set in a car is surprisingly compelling; it may not be a wild ride but you can't take your eyes off the road.
