Angus Barrie (Anthony Hopkins) is a member of the newly formed Irish Republican Army and on the run from the authorities in the early 1920s.

She meets Angus after discovering someone has slept in her beach hut, and the two form a close, if guarded, friendship.

Critic Reviews for The Dawning

All Critics (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Decorous direction and a stately pace render it indistinguishable from all those other films where sweet gels in pretty frocks take tea in the garden.

Audience Reviews for The Dawning

  • Sep 25, 2010
    Adequate drama of a girl's emerging sense of the greater world beyond her own. Full of acting greats, unfortunately none of their roles are fully fleshed out, a real shame is that Jean Simmons and Anthony Hopkins share no scenes. A bit too leisurely paced to be really involving.
