Movie Info

In a modest room in a Dublin suburb, two people prepare for a meeting that could have an enormous impact on their lives. For both of them, it is a complete step into the unknown. The film is based on a real meeting which took place between Ailbhe Griffith and the man who, nine years earlier, subjected her to a horrific sexual assault and left her seriously injured and fearing for her life. Griffith, in an extraordinary move, has chosen to play herself in this unique drama from one of Ireland's most provocative filmmakers, Alan Gilsenan. What emerges is a truly unique and unorthodox cinematic experience as Ailbhe courageously seeks healing through a progressive form of justice, rapidly gaining momentum throughout the world.


Critic Reviews for The Meeting

All Critics (4)

  • It is unique, remarkable, harrowing, moving and incredibly powerful, a must-see for anyone who has ever suffered violence or abuse, or who knows anyone who has. It is a difficult watch, but it is ultimately healing and uplifting.

  • In The Meeting, Ailbhe Griffith recreates her mediated encounter with the man who sexually assaulted her, as she sought restorative justice. The result is one of the year's most powerful films.

  • The film's final tip of the hand also feels a bit too orchestrated... That said, these superficial flaws are dwarfed by the aching humanity on display.

  • Alan Gilsenan's latest film is a tough but very rewarding watch.
