Darkly comic Irish thriller starring Brendan Gleeson. Gleeson plays Father James, who is the local clergyman of a rural Irish parish. During confession one Sunday, an unseen local informs Father James of his plan of killing him as a way of gaining retrobution for abuse he suffered as a young boy at the hands of another Catholic priest. Left with only seven days to make his peace, James visits those within his community while trying to track down his potential killer. Through his exchanges with the locals, which include a cuckolded butcher (Chris O'Dowd), a wealthy businessman (Dylan Moran) and an atheistic doctor (Aidan Gillen), James realises that the institution to which he has dedicated his life is becoming obsolete, causing him to doubt the validity of his faith...

This is a really good film, so thoughtful and provocative, but hampered by the fact that most of the incidental characters are drawn like sitcom tropes.
If you have any interest in theology or religion this film will blow your mind. If you have none, I'm guessing it might be a bit heavy, both in its darkness and its thoughtfulness.
The film deals with so much it's impossible to outline the many themes, but the central question is whether/when forgiveness is an appropriate response to child abuse.
