Brendan Gleeson as priest sentenced to die in “Calvary” trailer

PanARMENIAN.Net - A priest is told he will be killed for a crime he didn't commit in the new trailer for the black comedy “Calvary”, TheWrap said.

Brendan Gleeson plays Father James Lavelle, a hard-working and good-natured priest in a tiny Irish county. Everything seems normal until a member of his church confesses that he is going to kill Lavelle next Sunday, claiming that a priest raped him when he was seven. Since that priest is now dead, Lavelle is a target just because of his holy position.

The movie also stars Brendan's son, Domhnall Gleeson (who just joined the cast of “Star Wars: Episode VII”), Chris O'Dowd, Isaach de Bankole, Kelly Reilly and Dylan Moran.

Fox Searchlight picked up the rights to the movie in January during the Sundance Film Festival, and it is set to be released in the United States in August.
