It is safe to say that Calvary is by far Jeff, Dylan & Adam’s favorite film they’ve reviewed for the show thus far. But, of course, this show is not just about the quality of a given film, but it’s portrayal of real life faith. How does Calvary stack up? How many pieces of silver does it deserve? And who killed Father James’ dog? All these questions and much more will be discussed in this edition of Divine Cinema.

PLOT SUMMARY FOR CALVARY
Father James, an Irish priest, life is threatened when a parishioner from his church threatens to kill him because of the sins of someone else. Despite the threat, Father James continues in his priestly duties. Throughout his last week we are introduced to a diverse group of wounded people, including Father James’ own daughter who has just attempted to taker her life. Every interaction with the people in his town proves to be a mini theology course on the harshness of reality, all while wondering “who is going to be the killer?”
