(The Quiet Girl)
One of the most lauded Irish language films in years, this touching feature follows nine-year old Cáit, who has been sent to spend the summer with distant relatives Eibhlín and Seán. Shy, withdrawn and sorely lacking in much needed affection, Cáit begins to blossom under the couple’s care, even coaxing aloof Seán away from the farm. As tragic family secrets emerge and the summer creeps to an end, difficult realities must be faced for this newfound family. Featuring a stunning debut performance from young Catherine Clinch.
A detailed study guide for T1 and T2 senior cycle students, focusing on themes, characterization, scene analysis, Irish language filmmaking will be available from ifi.ie/studyguides
