Quotes from Brendan Gleeson's Characters

    1. August Nicholson: Let her go. If it ends, it ends. We can move towards hope, that's what's beautiful about this place. We cannot run from heartache. My brother was slain in the towns, the rest of my family died here. Heartache is a part of life, we know that now. Ivy is running toward hope, let her run. If this place is worthy, she'll be successful in her quest.

    1. Hank Keogh: I never heard of a crocodile crossing an ocean.
    2. Hector Cyr: Well, they conceal information like that in books.
