Colm Bairéad’s THE QUIET GIRL is a delicate drama that follows a shy nine-year-old who has been separated from her immediate family and left in the care of two distant relatives for the summer of 1981. After sun-dappled days spent milking cows, peeling potatoes, and fetching water from the well, the initially uncommunicative child soon opens up to her foster parents, but in this house where affection grows and there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one. Textural and tender, this award-winning film shows that home is where you feel loved.
Currently breaking box-office records in Ireland as the all-time highest grossing film in the Irish language, THE QUIET GIRL is Ireland’s submission for the 2022 Academy Awards®.
