An Cailín Ciúin
(The Quiet Girl)
Nine-year-old Cáit is sent by her dysfunctional family to spend the summer with an Aunt (Carrie Crowley) and Uncle (Andrew Bennett) she has never met before. The once quiet Cáit blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one.
Wonderfully recreating the feel of a country home in early-1980s Ireland, An Cailín Ciúin is a genuine, deeply felt portrait of the bonds that sustain us.
