Based in rural Ireland 1981, the Quiet Girl is a delicate drama that follows a shy nine-year-old who has been separated from her immediate family and left in the care of two distant relatives for the summer.
After sun-dappled days spent milking cows, peeling potatoes and fetching water from the well, the initially uncommunicative child soon opens up to her foster parents. Textural and tender, this award-winning film shows that home is where you feel loved.
