He is joined by Chris O’Dowd, Aidan Gillen and Kelly Reilly.Gleeson’s son Domhnall also appears in the black comedy, which sees a “good priest tormented by his community”.Domhnall is also a star of the other Irish film going to Sundance.He stars alongside Kerry’s own Michael Fassbender and Maggie Gyllenhall in Lenny Abrahamson’s comedy Frank, which was shot in Dublin and Wicklow.The comedy from the director of the acclaimed What Richard Did sees the younger Gleeson play an aspiring musician who joins a pop band.The chief executive of the Irish Film Board, James Hickey, said that the selection of the two films represented good news for the industry.“Both Frank and Calvary showcase the excellent work happening right now in the Irish industry and they include a world-class line-up of Irish stars including Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson. Chris O’Dowd, Domhnall Gleeson, Aidan Gillen and Killian Scott.
