Acclaimed Irish filmmaker Jim Sheridan (My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father, In America) returns with "The Secret Scripture," a flashback-laden period drama about an elderly Irish mental patient, named Roseanne McNulty, who has kept a secret diary for many years, in which she recounts her decades-old, doomed love affair with an air force pilot during Ireland's 1922 civil war.
The film stars Rooney Mara (as young Rose) and Vanessa Redgrave (as old Rose). While Jack Reynor, Theo James, Aidan Turner, and Eric Bana round out the cast.
Based on Sebastian Barry's best-selling novel of the same name, "The Secret Scripture" met with a lukewarm response from critics at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, which could be the reason why the movie has not received an official release date, as of yet. However, you can check out a newly-released international trailer for the upcoming film, watch it above.
A woman keeps a diary of her extended stay at a mental hospital. Based on the book by Sebastian Barry.
