Film Screening | Calvary

  • House on the Hill - The Salon 1543 Burden Lake Road Averill Park (map)

Directed by John Michael McDonagh

Father James is a small-town priest in Ireland whose Sunday confessionals suddenly include a threat to kill him in a week's time as a matter of principle. Deeply troubled and conflicted about how to respond, Father James tries to go on with his calling through that week. However, that proves impossible as he is confronted with a troubling variety of spiritual challenges from both his estranged daughter and his own parishioners. In those dispiriting struggles, Father James' life begins to fall apart as time runs out towards a confrontation that seems to crystallize his values and what he wants his life to be.

This film series is being crafted as we go along. Each screening is imagined to be an island and conversations around the films are how we navigate from one island to the next. After the film, discussions migrate to the kitchen for food and drinks as we share our experiences of the film.
