THE SECRET SCRIPTURE
Sebastian Barry’s award-winning tale finally reaches the big screen courtesy of director Jim Sheridan. With a stellar cast including Rooney Mara, Jack Reynor, Aidan Turner, Tom Vaughan- Lawlor and Vanessa Redgrave, this anticipated film sees central character Rose, who’s been living in a psychiatric hospital for 50 years and keeping a secret diary, relive the circumstances that led her there.
Out March 24.
Based on Daniel Woodrell’s acclaimed novel and adapted for the screen by Irish director Juanita Wilson, this is the tale of drifter Sammy Barlach (Jake Weary), who meets the red-haired Jamalee (Julia Garner) and her beautiful brother Jason, which opens his life up in ways he couldn’t have imagined, until everything falls apart after a sudden incident. Anna Friel also stars in this moving tale set in small-town America.
