Calvary

Calvary
  • 4 stars

  • 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.

In Mumbai, young mother Ila (Kaur) prepares a multi-layered lunchbox to be delivered by courier to his office, but when it's mistakenly delivered to grumpy middle-aged accountant Sajaan (Khan), an unlikely romance develops. A precisely structured romcom written with compassion and warmth; just don't watch it on an empty stomach.
