The Quiet Girl (12A)
Colm Bairéad’s beautifully understated feature debut finds a young girl coming to terms with loss and the importance of family in rural Ireland. Nine year-old Cait (Catherine Clinch) is neglected by her pregnant mother, boorish father and louder siblings. At school, she feels ignored. But things change when her father takes her to live with her mother’s cousin for the summer to alleviate her parents’ financial woes. At first, Cait feels intimidated by her new environment, though soon finds freedom in this new world along with the attention she so desperately needs. But even as this new home becomes an idyll for her, Cait senses that something is plaguing her new foster parents. There is unspoken grief that exists in the house which Cait’s youthful curiosity begins to uncover.
