Review: 'Calvary' is exquisitely nuanced

Review: 'Calvary' is exquisitely nuanced

LOS ANGELES (AP) — John Michael McDonagh's 2011 debut, "The Guard," provided the wonderful Brendan Gleeson with a vehicle for some of his best screen work, playing an Irish West Country cop unencumbered by diplomacy skills. But "Calvary," the follow-up collaboration of the writer-director and lead actor is in a whole different league. Gleeson's performance as a man of profound integrity suffering for the sins of others is the lynchpin of this immensely powerful drama, enriched by spiky black comedy but also by its resonant contemplation of faith and forgiveness. Representing a considerable leap in thematic scope and craft for McDonagh, "Calvary" deserves to reach the widest possible audience.
