We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of The Secret Scripture, the upcoming drama movie directed by Jim Sheridan and starring Aidan Turner, Rooney Mara, Theo James, Eric Bana, Jack Reynor, and Vanessa Redgrave:
THE SECRET SCRIPTURE
“A woman keeps a diary of her extended stay at a mental hospital. Based on the novel by Sebastian Barry.
Lady Rose is an elderly woman who has lived in a hospital for 40 years. Despite her bleak surroundings there is a light in her eyes that cannot be extinguished.
Dr Grene is drawn to her, compelled to discover her past and gain her freedom. Through her scripture we reveal a life of extraordinary love, great injustice and a remarkable young woman of courage whose only crime was to fall in love yet she survives the system’s brutal violations.
Set against a backdrop of troubled times locally and chaos internationally we learn of her ultimate triumph.”
Did love drive her crazy? Or did it protect from falling into the abyss of dementia? What do you think happened?
