About

The Secret Scripture centres around Rose McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), an elderly woman who has lived in state institutions for over 50 years. Despite her bleak surroundings there is a light in her eyes that cannot be extinguished. Dr. Stephen Grene (Eric Bana) is drawn to her, compelled to discover her past and help gain her freedom.  Through Lady Rose’s ‘scripture’, a life of extraordinary love and great injustice emerges, revealing a remarkable young woman of courage, whose only crime was to fall in love. Set against a backdrop of an emerging Irish state in the 1940’s in which female sexuality and independence unsettled the colluding patriarchies of church and nationalist politics, we learn of her ultimate triumph.

Featuring a stellar international and Irish cast including Academy Award© nominee Rooney Mara (Carol, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Academy Award© winner Vanessa Redgrave, Eric Bana (Munich), Theo James (Insurgent) along with Jack Reynor (Glassland), Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (The Infiltrator), The Secret Scripture is the feature film adaptation of Sebastian Barry’s best-selling and award-winning novel.
