In this witty follow-up to the 2010 film The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom reunites comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon for a new culinary road trip. In this version, our heroes retrace the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy, all while indulging in sparkling banter and various impersonation-offs. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay of Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, cooking up a biting portrait of modern day masculinity. (Unrated, 1 hr 48 min)
Father James (Brendan Gleeson) is a priest who receives a death threat during confession and must find out who in his congregation is responsible before it's too late. Although he continues to comfort his daughter (Kelly Reilly) and reach out to help members of his church with their moral - and often comic - problems, he feels sinister forces closing in. Will he have the courage to face his own personal Calvary? A brilliant performance by all, Calvary faces weighty issues with humor, intelligence, and sensitivity. (R, 1hr 40min)
