Plot: Ireland is a country of conservative Catholicism. I would not izletao, but would probably claim that Ireland’s most Catholic country in Europe was true. I dare say that the incidents from the clergy in Ireland, the picture of what happens when the priests that much power. There were various atrocities, exploitation of the poor and terrible enrichment clergy over almost prison living conditions of the residents of the orphanage homes and the church administration to pedophilia, child abduction and selling of the same wealthy American couples. Ultimately, it is the latter topic deals with the last British-Irish film Philomena who picked up an Oscar nomination. Misdeeds of the Catholic Church are, therefore, painful and a central theme in Irish society. Calvary , the new film by John Michael McDonagh deals with the clash of the church with the rest of society.
McDonagh brothers, John and Michael “Oscar winner” Martin is probably the most important authors of contemporary Irish cinema. John Michael stayed closer to home, The Guard and Calvary are primarily Irish films, deeply cemented in Irish society.
