Cailín, Interrupted

Colm Bairéad’s award-winning An Cailín Ciúin comes to The Whale

Perhaps the most celebrated Irish film of the past year is about to come to Greystones.

Certainly one of the best-reviewed Irish films of, oh, the last 100 years, Colm Bairéad’s award-winning An Cailín Ciúin (Ireland/PG/94mins) is currently wowing ’em in cinemas.

And it’s coming to The Whale on Friday, July 8th.

Telling the story the young Cáit, sent by her dysfunctional family to spend the summer with an aunt and uncle she has never met before, this once-quiet girl blossoming in their care. But in a house with no secrets, she discovers one. A genuine, deeply-felt portrait of the bonds that bind and sustain us, An Cailín Ciúin is a quiet wonder, described by The Irish Times as ‘truly remarkable’. And for once, their arty-farty film critic is right.

Screening on Friday, July 8th at 8pm in The Whale, your €10 admission comes with, as always, a box of freshly-popped popcorn absolutely free.
