Calvary, John Michael McDonagh's ambiguously religious movie, stars Brendan Gleeson as a committed and devout priest in a small town in Ireland, whose life is threatened by one of his parishioners. The distraught man says he wants to kill a good priest as retaliation for the sexual abuse he suffered as a child in the hands of another priest. Some critics find this bitter, dark comedy the best film in recent years about the Catholic church's sexual abuse scandal. The priest carries the burn den of a ruined scorned church on one shoulder and an immoral, cynical and psychologically ruined society on the other. His dauntless task is to fix one ruin with another, and save his own life in the balance.
