Poster for The Quiet Girl

An award winner at Berlin 2022, this Irish tale follows a shy nine-year-old who has been separated from her immediate family and left in the care of two distant relatives for the summer. After sun-dappled days spent milking cows, peeling potatoes, and fetching water from the well, the initially uncommunicative child soon opens up to her foster parents.

A coming-of-age tale with an unerring eye for detail, this seemingly familiar drama... is also quietly subversive.

The film is low on incident, but generous to its characters and invigoratingly sweet.
