CALVARY: Watch Brendan Gleeson In The New Trailer

, Associate Editor, News
After its debut at Sundance and a jury prize win in Berlin, everyone will be able to see John Michael McDonagh's Calvary in August. To help bide the time there is a new trailer to share with you. 

Calvary's Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a good priest who is faced with sinister and troubling circumstances brought about by a mysterious member of his parish. Although he continues to comfort his own fragile daughter (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their various scurrilous moral -- and often comic -- problems, he feels sinister forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.

Not only has McDonagh teamed up with Gleeson again, but he's also added notable talent to his lineup in Chris O'Dowd (Moone Boy and The IT Crowd), Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), and Dylan Moran (Black Books and Shaun of the Dead). 

Twitch founder and editor, Todd Brown, caught the film at Sundance and wrote in part, "Calvary is nothing short of a masterpiece, a very nearly flawless film that knows exactly what it wants to accomplish and does so seemingly without effort". You will find a link to his full review below.
