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 and troubling forces closing in, and begins to wonder if he will have the courage to face his own personal Calvary.

THE EXTRAS: As with many smaller films, there isn't a lot of special features, but I was grateful for what was there. The longest one was a roughly 20-minute behind-the-scenes featurette in which the cast get to talk about the characters. It was a great ensemble cast and, even though there wasn't a whole lot of additional insight, it felt like this was a project that they all were proud to be part of. Beyond that, there were a few short promotional featurettes that go into the film's themes, Gleeson's priest character, and the key relationship of the priest with his daughter. There is also a still gallery. The material provided doesn't go that deep, but the film more than makes up for it.
OVERALL: I can't overstate how amazing this film is. The performances are top-notch, the locations and cinematography beautiful, and above all it explores some very human themes that should speak to anyone. As with many Fox releases (especially from the Searchlight sub-label), it's pretty light on supplementary material, but this is worth a purchase based on the film alone. Again, if you haven't yet seen this I highly recommend that you do so. You won't be disappointed.
