Synopsis

Irish Catholic priest Brendan Gleeson is told by a mystery man during Confession that he is going to be killed in precisely one week. His would-be assassin explains that his death is revenge for abuse as a child...and it would be far better to murder a "good priest". For the next seven days he is forced to soak up vicious abuse from his parishioners, including supercilious squire Dylan Moran and wife-beating butcher Chris O'Dowd, as his appointment with fate looms. Director John Michael McDonagh follows the superlative The Guard with a harder, bleaker tale that still manages to pack a comedic punch.
