With star Brendan Gleeson and writer/director John Michael McDonagh in person
Dir. John Michael McDonagh. 2014, 100 mins. DCP courtesy of Fox Searchlight. With Brendan Gleeson, Chris O’Dowd, Kelly Reilly. In a masterfully made, darkly comic film that is bound to be one of the year’s most talked-about movies, the great actor Brendan Gleeson plays an Irish priest who is marked for death by a parishioner, and given one week to live. “A mordantly funny survey of small-town iniquity that morphs, almost imperceptibly, into a deeply felt lament for a fallen world,” wrote Justin Chang in Variety. “A completely sincere work about the persistence of faith and the Catholic Church’s soul-shattering legacy of abuse, this is a literate, beautifully crafted picture.”
