This will be followed by an exclusive screening of Academy Award-nominated director Jim Sheridan’s new feature THE SECRET SCRIPTURE at Edwards Big Newport.


In contemporary Ireland, St. Malachy’s asylum is being shut down. An elderly woman (Vanessa Redgrave) who has spent most of her life there, after she was arrested for murdering her newborn, is being prepared to be transferred. When she refuses to be bussed off to another facility, she becomes assessed by a psychiatrist (Eric Bana) to evaluate her potential release. What ensues is a series of time jumps between the current era and 1942 as the woman traces her history and argues her case. As she attempts to bring a part of herself into focus, crucial chapters from her past come back to her with a new specificity. Cast includes Rooney Mara, Vanessa Redgrave, Theo James, Eric Bana, Jack Reynor
