Calvary was the big winner at Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTAs) in Dublin on Saturday 5 April. The story of a good priest confronting bad elements in his rural parish won best film, best script for its writer/director John Michael McDonagh and best actor for Brendan Gleeson. Dispensing with the fulsome thanks which usually surround an acceptance speech, McDonagh thanked himself for spending a month in a room on his own coming up with the script. Gleeson thanked a Christian Brother teacher in his primary school who was “brave enough to allow creativity to appear normal”. Calvary was released on 11 April.
