AN CAILÍN CIÚIN (THE QUIET GIRL) won a staggering seven Irish Film and Television Academy awards at the recent IFTAs including BEST FILM, BEST DIRECTOR and BEST ACTRESS. Writer/Director, Colm Bairéad also won the Rising Star award. The film has wowed critics and audiences alike with Screen Daily believing it “ should be seen as a classic of its kind” and Little White Lies saying it “Grips you, rips you apart, before putting you back together and making you whole again”. The Business Post says “This delicate, deeply affecting coming-of-age story might just be the best Irish-language film ever made”.
AN CAILÍN CIÚIN (THE QUIET GIRL) tells the story of Cáit (Catherine Clinch) – a nine-year-old girl from an overcrowded, dysfunctional family who is sent away to live with her mother’s relatives for the summer. She is welcomed with open arms by Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley), but her husband (Andrew Bennett) keeps Cáit at arm’s length. Slowly, but surely a warmth grows within this makeshift family and Cáit blossoms in their care. But in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth.
