Adjacent Meridian Point,
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 coming to The Whale.
Telling the story of Cáit who is sent by her dysfunctional family to spend the summer with an aunt and uncle she has never met before, the once-quiet girl blossoms 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 critics are right.
