Calvary

Brendan Gleeson is always worth watching. And in this film, especially so.

A great set up in the opening scene leads  to a kind of  ‘who’s going to do it’ scenario, with Gleeson at the centre as the man who is trying to do right while surrounded by a collection of deeply troubled people.

It’s a really thought-provoking look at the Ireland of the 21st century, as it struggles to come to terms with the issues which have besmirched its reputation of late.
