Calvary (2014)
Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a conscientious priest and a widower whose faith is not shared by many in his flock. During a confession a mysterious parishioner threatens to kill the priest in a week's time. As Father James continues to comfort the troubled members of his community, including his own daughter, he struggles to find the courage to meet his fate. This highly acclaimed film was written and directed by John Michael McDonagh.
The film will be shown on Monday, February 2, at 6:30 p.m. in the Auditorium.
