Shorelines Film Nights is delighted to relaunch with the highest-grossing Irish-language film of all time around the world, and first Irish-language drama to gross €1m at the Ireland and UK box office, AN CAILÍN CIÚIN
Nine year old Cáit (Catherine Clinch) is sent by her dysfunctional family to spend the summer with an Aunt and Uncle she has never met before. Through the tender care of her aunt Eibhlín (Carrie Crowley) Cáit finally feels loved and safe. Despite himself her uncle Sean (Andrew Bennett) forges a bond and
for the first time Cáit experiences the warmth of a loving home. The once quiet Cáit blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one.
Wonderfully recreating the feel of a country home in 1980s Ireland, An Cailín Ciúin, adapted from Claire Keegan’s acclaimed short story, Foster, is a genuine, deeply felt portrait of the bonds that sustain us.
Tuesday October 25 Boathouse Bar at 8pm. Tickets €7 available at door.
