The Secret Scripture is the hidden memoir of Roseanne McNulty, played by Vanessa Redgrave, confined to a Roscommon mental hospital for fifty years, and revealing the history of her passionate yet tortured life, and of the religious and political upheavals in Ireland during the 1920s and ’30s. As well as the Oscar-winning Redgrave, the film stars Rooney Mara (A Ghost Story, Carol), rising star Jack Reynor (Free Fire, Sing Street), and Aidan Turner (Poldark, The Tudors). The Secret Scripture is a powerful story of love, loss, and belated redemption.
