THE SECRET SCRIPTURE   

The Secret Scripture
The Secret Scripture
Join us for the last in this season’s Cinema at the SEAC.

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. Stephen 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. Filmed in the stark but stunningly beautiful west of Ireland, The Secret Scripture uncovers a dark chapter in Ireland’s history.
