Movie Info

Silent Grace, the debut feature from director Maeve Murphy, is based on actual events. In the early 1980s, a new inmate (Cathleen Bradley) is thrown into prison with a group of female IRA insurgents led by Orla Brady). Although the newcomer has been put there to destabalize the group, they convert her and begin the "dirty" protests, which involves the inmates refusing to clean themselves. Silent Grace was screened at the Hamptons Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

  • 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 movie boasts a strong lead in Orla Brady, but I have to say it didn't quite work for me.

  • 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.
