About this event

Based on the acclaimed story, Foster by Claire Keegan, An Cailín Ciúin (The Quiet Girl) is a complex and delicate coming-of-age drama that explores questions of family, neglect and loss through the eyes of its young protagonist.

An Cailín Ciúin tells the story of Cáit (Catherine Clinch) - a nine-year-old girl from an overcrowded, dysfunctional family who is sent away to live with her mother’s relatives for the summer. She is welcomed with open arms by Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley), but her husband (Andrew Bennett) keeps Cáit at arm's length. Slowly, but surely a warmth grows within this makeshift family and Cáit blossoms in their care. But in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth.

Language: Irish & English, Duration: 95mins, Cert: 12A, Director: Colm Bairéad
