CALVARY, John McDonagh's newest film, with Brendan Gleeson and a supremely-talented ensemble, screened last night at Sundance Film Festival, to rave reviews!  Patrick Cassidy's beautiful score received special mention!
It's an honor to be part of such a powerful score, and film.  Here are the reviews, and the trailer:

The Hollywood Reporter: 'This is a film of rich layers – glorious comedic highs are interwoven with meditative moments and flashes of startling hostility and violence. The underlying solemnity is channeled in Patrick Cassidy's soulful, quasi-sacred score, and in the majestic drama of the physical settings.
John Michael McDonagh’s 2011 debut, The Guard, provided the wonderful Brendan Gleeson with a vehicle for some of his best screen work, playing an Irish West Country cop unencumbered by diplomacy skills. But the follow-up collaboration of the writer-director and lead actor is in a whole different league. Gleeson’s performance as a man of profound integrity suffering for the sins of others is the lynchpin of this immensely powerful drama, enriched by spiky black comedy but also by its resonant contemplation of faith and forgiveness. Representing a considerable leap in thematic scope and craft for McDonagh, Calvary deserves to reach the widest possible audience' (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/calvary-sundance-review-672450)

Variety: 'A completely sincere work…this literate, beautifully crafted picture should translate near-certain critical plaudits into a distinguished arthouse reception worldwide… Patrick Cassidy's melancholy score is summoned at just the right moments'.

Here is the trailer --- Don't miss this amazing movie!!
