Friday 16th June – THE QUIET GIRL
(2022: Cert.12: Drama: 95 mins)
Doors open 7.30pm / Programme starts 8pm
Cáit is a nine year old girl from an over-crowded, dysfunctional and impoverished family. Quietly struggling at school and at home, she has learnt to hide in plain sight from those around her. As summer arrives and her pregnant mother’s due date approaches, Cáit is sent to live with middle-aged farming relatives she’s never met before, not knowing when she will return home. She blossoms in their care but in their farmhouse, where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one….
“Oh my goodness, The Quiet Girl is a truly beautiful and deeply moving work of cinematic wonder” Matthew Bond, The Mail On Sunday
“A genuine work of art….one of the single most moving, heartfelt and heartbreaking movies from any country in the last decade”
David Fear, Rolling Stone magazine.
