The Irish priest with a week long death sentence over his head reminds me of the late Father Daniel Munn, my parochial vicar at the Church of the Most Holy Trinity in Augusta. He was a former Episcopal priest who became Catholic; was married and with many children and grandchildren.
The priest in the movie is a widower with a daughter who became a priest after his wife died in post-Catholic Ireland damaged by the sex abuse scandal. The entire movie is centered on the sex abuse scandal but not obsessively so, but it is the foundation! The actor who plays the priest is marvelous. The priest is very pastoral, a good man!
After he is given his death sentence in the confessional, the seven days play out with the priest doing a variety of priestly things but also thinking about what he must do about his death sentence. It is a great movie, great acting and a nice Irish feel with the characters and the beautiful Irish landscape. It is beautifully filmed and acted. I recommend it!
