With a stellar cast including Eric Bana, Vanessa Redgrave and Rooney Mara, The Secret Scripture is a compelling tale of love and life in troubled times.

Based on the acclaimed best-selling novel by Sebastian Barry, the film follows Lady Rose (Vanessa Redgrave), an older woman who has lived in a hospital for over 50 years. Despite her bleak surroundings, there is a light in her eyes that cannot be extinguished.

Drawn to Lady Rose, Dr Stephen Grene (Eric Bana) is compelled to discover her past and help her find freedom. Through Lady Rose’s story, a life of extraordinary love and great injustice emerges, revealing a remarkable young woman of courage, whose only crime was to fall in love. Set against a backdrop of turbulent times on the home front and chaos internationally, we learn of her ultimate triumph.
