Film (Double Bill): “AN CAILĺN CIUĺN” (The Quiet Girl) AND “AN IRISH GOODBYE”

13 April 2023 @ 20:00 - 22:00


To mark the end of our movie season before we break for the summer, we are pleased to present a very special double bill: Two Irish-made films, both nominated for an Academy Award.

“AN CAILĺN CIUĺN” (The Quiet Girl)

(2021) Ireland.
Length: 95 mins; Rating: 12A
This film is in Irish, with English subtitles.
Director: Colm Bairéad
Cast: Catherine Clinch, Carrie Crowley, Andrew Bennett.

Adapted from ‘Foster,’ a short story by Claire Keegan, the story centres on nine-year-old Cáit, a shy and withdrawn child who receives scant attention or affection from a family ruled by an uncaring patriarch. When she is sent to spend the summer with her aunt Eibhlín and her husband Seán, she comes out of her shell, blossoming in their care.  At the end of the summer, difficult decisions and realities must be faced.  This is a work of small moments and details, anchored by Catherine Clinch’s remarkable performance as the titular quiet girl, that make for a film of pure artistry, as uplifting as it is heart-breaking.

  • Nominated for an Academy Award (Best International Feature Film).
  • Winner of 23 international cinema awards.
