Assured helming by newcomer Maeve Murphy, unflagging pace, well-developed characters, and strong perfs throughout make for a solid if slightly old-fashioned meller.
Though well acted and concisely plotted, the film is not up to the events it engages -- but it's tough to imagine a film that would be.
The performances have a conviction that still commands attention.
Wonderfully humane, even-handed and quietly joyful.
The first feature film written, produced and directed by Maeve Murphy, Silent Grace is an effectively low-key and slow-burning treatment of events that have faded into history.
This sensitive reflection on the climate of 1980s Northern Ireland, equally relevant to the 'War on Terror', is a quietly subtle drama exploring how easily humanity can get locked away during conflicts which admit no compromise.
Writer-director-producer Maeve Murphy's techniques are still chained to the theatre; some touches are unsubtle and she allows too much fluctuation across the performances.
It's more than a little rough around the edges, but its story and message are too important to be dismissed.
The movie boasts a strong lead in Orla Brady, but I have to say it didn't quite work for me.
