The Quiet Girl

“The Quiet Girl” is an Irish film mostly in Gaelic. It is the story of a young girl from a very poor family with five brothers and sisters and one on the way. Her parents send her to stay on a farm with cousins who have no children. The movie shows her transformation from an unhappy little girl to a more confident, content person. It also shows how she changes the adults lives. The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. A small, but compelling character study, I recommend this movie.
