NB CHANGES TO THE PUBLISHED PROGRAMME
MR TURNER is now getting a longer outing in Merlin's main programme, running from 14th November at the Savoy and Phoenix for two weeks.
METROPOLIS has been moved from the 30th November to Saturday 29th to avoid conflict with THE ROCKET.
02 Nov-05 Nov
Difficult themes including sexual abuse within the church are tackled here in an engaging and beautiful thriller. Calvary uses black humour to carry us along a very strong story, resting on the formidable shoulders of Gleeson's character as the Catholic priest exposed to some testing confessions as he wrestles with the dark forces of his own fallibility, as well as that of those around him.
