A soft-spoken girl named Cáit is sent by her parents to live with a pair of distant relatives. Cáit spends the summer on an idyllic Irish farm, and along the way, changes her life. The Quiet Girl is the first Irish-language film to be nominated for an Academy Award. (in Gaeiic with subtitles; 87 min)
The Quiet Girl is, quite simply, a genuine work of art by a genuinely empathetic artist, and one of the single most moving and heartfelt movies from any country in the last decade. -Rolling Stone
Colm Bairéad’s multi-award-winning Irish-language drama, might be small in scale, it’s one of the most exquisitely realized films of the year. -The Guardian
There may not be a movie more expressive of the Holiday season’s benevolent ethos than this hushed work about kith and kindness. CRITIC’S PICK! – The New York Times.
To be wanted. To not be wanted. That simple tension is the heart of The Quiet Girl, an EXTRAORDINARY, tiny, intimate, and deeply touching story of a childhood suddenly filled with that most fragile of gifts: hope. – The Austin Chronicle
One of the most authentic, naturalistic, and beautiful Irish films ever made. Sorry Inisherin, but this is as close to perfect as Irish film gets. – Collider
