Rural Ireland. 1981. Nine-year-old Cait is sent away from her overcrowded, dysfunctional family to live with foster parents for the summer.

She blossoms in their care, but in this house where there are meant to be no secrets, she discovers one painful truth.

“Although THE QUIET GIRL is not holiday fare, there may not be a movie more expressive of the season’s benevolent ethos than this hushed work about kith and kindness.” Lisa Kennedy. A New York Times Critic's Pick!
