Critic Reviews for Silent Grace

All Critics (5)

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.

It's more than a little rough around the edges, but its story and message are too important to be dismissed.
