Actors Susan Lynch and Eric Bana joined Director Jim Sheridan at the Savoy Cinema Dublin for Audi Dublin International Film Festival gala screening of his latest film, The Secret Scripture. Sheridan also invited along recently engaged former Apollo House residents Mark Seenan and Cheryl Murphy to see the film on the night.

Based on Sebastian Barry’s acclaimed novel, Jim Sheridan’s first Irish-set film since The Boxer (1997) explores the life and history of Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), a woman?confined to the Roscommon?Mental Hospital for 50 years. As the institution is about to close, Dr?Grene (Eric Bana) is sent to see whether she’s fit to be released. He’s intrigued by Roseanne’s eccentricities and her fierce attachment to her Bible, in which she’s been keeping a diary since she was first admitted. As he delves into her past, Dr?Grene gets to know the younger Roseanne (played by Rooney Mara) and eventually learns the terrible truth about her confinement.
