I've just watched this film with a room full of people. When the credits started at the end, no-one spoke. Then we started talking and half an hour was gone, probably much more.

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.

Grittier than "The Guard" and for many in the Catholic Church it should make for difficult viewing. A very difficult story, well told and hopefully (even in a far-from 'perfect world') make for much real-life changes around the world.

Good acting. Depressing,miserable and disappointing. Did not see any black comedy content. Going straight to thrift shop.

Brilliant film if you like the dark humour of Brendan Gleeson.
Delivered promptly. Excellent value.

Great acting, great cinematography. Black humour in a cathartic story.

It was OK. The Guard covers similar ground but is better and more humorous.

A lot darker than expected, but a damned good film, received as advertised. 10 out of 10.
