THE QUIET GIRL
Dir Colm Bairéad | 2021 | Ireland | 95 mins | 12A | Irish Gaelic with English subtitles
Based on the renowned story Foster by Claire Keegan. In rural Ireland, 1981, a quiet, neglected girl is sent away from her overcrowded, dysfunctional family to live with foster parents for the summer. She blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth. Colm Bairéad’s remarkable debut feature is both an empathetic examination of loss and a quiet celebration of human kindness.
