The Calvary T-Shirt from Hellwood celebrates Brendan Gleeson's award winning performance as Father James in the gripping and emotionally tumultuous film from John Michael McDonagh.
Calvary (2014) is a dark drama film directed by John Michael McDonagh and starring Brendan Gleeson as Father James Lavelle, a good-natured priest in a small town in Ireland. The film begins with Father James receiving a death threat from an unseen confessor who claims to have been sexually abused by a priest as a child. The confessor says that he will kill Father James in a week as a matter of principle, to send a message to the Catholic Church.
Despite the threat, Father James goes on with his life as usual, tending to his flock and trying to help those in need. He meets with a variety of people, including a cynical atheist, a wealthy banker, and a woman whose husband has been killed in a drunk driving accident. Through these encounters, Father James is forced to confront the anger and resentment that many people feel towards the Catholic Church, as well as his own self-doubts and faith.
On the day of the threatened killing, Father James goes to the beach where he has been instructed to meet the confessor. He waits alone, but the confessor never appears. It is left unclear whether the confessor was simply trying to scare Father James or if he really intended to kill him.
Calvary is a complex and thought-provoking film that explores the themes of faith, forgiveness, and redemption. It is also a powerful indictment of the Catholic Church's role in the sexual abuse scandal. Gleeson gives a masterful performance as Father James, a man who is both deeply flawed and deeply human.
The film has been praised for its strong performances, its writing, and its direction. It has also been credited with sparking a national conversation about the Catholic Church and its role in Irish society.

Most of our t-shirts are printed onto the Gildan range of clothing. The Gildan tees are 100% preshrunk cotton. We find these tees are particularly suited to DTG printing and are available in a wide variety of sizes and colours. Occasionally, when stock dictates, we will use a similar brand of equivalent quality. All of our t-shirts are manufactured using the latest Direct To Garment printing (DTG) printing methods. Unlike traditional screen printing DTG does not require detailed layer seperation, screen preparation etc which makes it the ideal print solution for detailed, multi-coloured designs. As the name suggests, all our t-shirts have their designs printed directly onto the garment using specially formulated garment inks. For best results we recommend washing all our t-shirts inside out with similar colours and on a cool 30 degree wash. To avoid any excessive shrinkage avoid the tumble dryer and let Mother Nature do her work by line drying your tee.
