From the director of The Guard comes another darkly comic thriller in the same vein of wicked black humour. Again featuring the wonderful Brendan Gleeson in a career best, heart-and-soul performance, this time as Father James a good priest who has been told he has a week to live. As the death threat was delivered at confession, he doesn’t know who it was, and can’t go to the police. So he opts to try to understand his small minded, frankly bonkers parishioners in the hope of dissuading the killer. There is some brilliant comedy from a lineup of village oddballs but which one is intent on murder?
