A psychiatrist (Eric Bana) examines Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), an elderly Irishwoman living in a mental institution, and learns more about her past in the process. Rooney Mara plays McNulty as a young woman, in flashbacks that detail her love triangle with a fighter pilot (Jack Reynor) and a priest (Theo James). Directed by Jim Sheridan, The Secret Scripture is based on the novel of the same name by Sebastian Barry.
The overall power of the story is female suppression across the ages that really hits home - subtly interwoven, but accompanied by that unsavoury feel of demonising the independent screen female again.
Jim Sheridan's first Irish movie since The Boxer has trouble unpicking its mysteries, opting for a romantic soap that sees Rooney Mara's heroine face ostracism after falling for Jack Reynor's RAF pilot in '40s Sligo.
