The Quiet Girl12A

Directed by Colm Bairéad | Ireland | 2022 | 1h 35m | Irish Gaelic w/ English subtitles | Starring Catherine Clinch, Carrie Crowley, Andrew Bennett, Michael Patric

In 1980s Ireland, a quiet nine-year-old girl is sent to live on a farm with foster parents for the summer. After a short period of unease she begins to blossom in their care, however, she soon discovers that her foster parents have secrets of their own. Centred on a remarkable performance by its young star and adapted from Claire Keegan’s acclaimed short story, this poignant Irish-language film is a moving coming of age story and a beautiful portrait of rural life. Nominated for Best International Feature at this year’s Oscars.


‘It’s one of the most exquisitely realised films of the year. There’s a kinship with Céline Sciamma’s Petite Maman in the crystalline delicacy of the storytelling.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘An endlessly-empathetic and open exploration of grief that grows more loving with time.’
Alicia Haddick, Little White Lies

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
