Storyline

Roseanne McNulty must vacate the soon-to-be demolished mental institution in Roscommon, Ireland that she's called home for over 50 years. The hospital's psychiatrist, Dr. William Grene, is called in to assess her condition. He finds himself intrigued by Roseanne's seemingly inscrutable rituals and tics, and her fierce attachment to her Bible, which she has over the decades transformed into a palimpsest of scripture, drawings, and cryptic diary entries. As Grene delves deeper into Roseanne's past, we see her as a young woman, whose charisma proves seductive. We learn that she moved to Sligo to work in her aunt's café, fell in love with a dashing fighter pilot), and that a local priest fell tragically in love with her. Written by AnonymousB

Great movie
12 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

What a great movie.

If you liked The Notebook and know a bit about the conflict between the Republic of Ireland and Britain, it's a must see.

Terrific cast - Vanessa Redgrave (Call the Midwife), Eric Bana, Theo James (Divergent), Aidan Turner (Poldark), Rooney Mara (Lion), Adrian Dunbar (Line Of Duty), Jack Reynor - very fitting music and very emotional.

There were a couple of times when I wished documents had stayed on the screen slightly longer so that I could have read the contents but that won't be a problem when the Blu-ray and DVD come out, which I'll definitely be adding to my collection.
