Mermaid Arts Centre have added an extra screening of award-winning Irish film ‘An Cailín Ciúin (The Quiet Girl)'

Nine-year-old Cáit (Catherine Clinch) is sent by her family to spend the summer with an aunt and uncle she has never met before. Through the tender care of her aunt Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley) Cáit finally feels loved and safe.

Despite himself, her uncle Sean (Andrew Bennett) forges a bond and for the first time, Cáit experiences the warmth of a loving home. The once quiet Cáit blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one.

‘An Cailín Ciúin’ is adapted from Claire Keegan’s acclaimed story ‘Foster’.
