Last weekend we finally saw Calvary, a movie recommended to us by The Filmdog–aka our brother-in-law.
The movie is an Irish drama set around the theme of catholic priests pedophilia, with multiple characters declaring having been molested by priests.
James, the main character and focus of the story, is a priest in a very small town. A good priest, struggling with his humanity, his weaknesses and values. He’s told in the opening scene that he’s going to be killed next Sunday. The movie is set in the week that precedes that Sunday.
It’s a dark flick that successfully illustrates some aspects of human nature.
89% on Rotten. I agree.
I loved this film and couldn’t stop crying when I watched it.
It’s a sad movie. :) x
