Film
An Cailín Ciúin (The Quiet Girl)
The Quiet Girl, directed by Colm Bairéad

Nine-year-old Cáit (Catherine Clinch) is sent by her dysfunctional family to spend the summer with an Aunt and Uncle she has never met before. Through the tender care of her aunt Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley) Cáit finally feels loved and safe. Despite himself, her uncle Sean (Andrew Bennett) forges a bond and for the first time, Cáit experiences the warmth of a loving home. 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 1980s Ireland, An Cailín Ciúin, adapted from Claire Keegan’s acclaimed short story, Foster, is a genuine, deeply felt portrait of the bonds that sustain us.

An Cailín Ciúin
Insíonn An Cailín Ciúin scéal Cháit (Catherine Clinch), cailín naoi mbliana d’aois ó theaghlach atá róphlódaithe, mífheidhmiúil agus a chuirtear ar shiúl chun cónaí le tuismitheoirí altrama don samhradh. D’ainneoin fáilte chroíúil ón bhean, Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley), d’fhan fear an tí, Seán (Andrew Bennett) amach ó Cháit, agus íse uaidhsean, ach le himeacht ama thosaigh cairdeas ag neartú eatarthu. Go mall, faoi chúram na gCinsealach, bláthaíonn Cáit agus aimsíonn sí slí úr beatha. Ach sa teach seo nár chóir aon rúin a bheith ann, tagann sí ar aon fhírinne phianmhar amháin.

Tá An Cailín Ciúin bunaithe ar an ghearrscéal ardmholta Foster le Claire Keegan, agus dráma casta, cigilteach is ea é faoi theacht in aois a dhéanann iniúchadh ar cheisteanna teaghlaigh, neamairt agus cumha trí shúile a phríomhcharachtair óig. Is é An Cailín Ciúin an chéad scannán fada ón scríbhneoir agus stiúrthóir, Colm Bairéad agus ón léiritheoir, Cleona Ní Chrualaoi ó Inscéal.
