Take a look to this first official picture of The Secret Scripture, the upcoming drama movie directed by Jim Sheridan from a script by Johnny Ferguson based on the novel of the same name 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.”
I also spotted this youtube video featuring behind-the-scenes photos from the set:
