A quiet, neglected girl is sent away from her dysfunctional family to live with relatives for the summer. She blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one.

Filmed mostly in the Irish language (gaeilge), The Quiet Girl is nominated for Best International Feature at the 2023 Academy Awards and  is based on the novella Foster by Claire Keegan.

"The Quiet Girl is, quite simply, a genuine work of art by a genuinely empathetic artist, and one of the single most moving, heartfelt, and heartbreaking movies from any country in the last decade." - DAVID FEAR - Rolling Stone

This film is being screened as part of our Book to Screen season, celebrating literature on film across the week of Hexham Book Festival.
