Director Jim Sheridan's new film The Secret Scripture receives its Irish Premiere via the ADIFF Gala Screening on Saturday 18th February, with Sheridan and a bona fide screen legend in attendance - the venerable Vanessa Redgrave, who stars in the film and will be in Dublin to receive ADIFF's Lifetime Achievement Volta Award.

From the ADIFF programme: Based on Sebastian Barry’s acclaimed novel, Jim Sheridan’s first Irish-set film since The Boxer (1997) explores the life and history of Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), a woman confined to the Roscommon Mental Hospital for 50 years. As the institution is about to close, Dr. Grene (Eric Bana) is sent to see whether she’s fit to be released. He’s intrigued by Roseanne’s eccentricities and her fierce attachment to her Bible, in which she’s been keeping a diary since she was first admitted. As he delves into her past, Dr. Grene gets to know the younger Roseanne (played by Rooney Mara) and eventually learns the terrible truth about her confinement. Shot in the starkly beautiful west of Ireland, The Secret Scripture uncovers a dark chapter in Ireland’s history.
