Plot: A woman keeps a diary of her extended stay at a mental hospital. Runtime: 108 mins Release Date: 23 Feb 2017
I'm not going to explain the story, that has been done in other reviews. What I do want to say is thisThe end of this movie brought tears to my eyes, and literally almost broke me, because I have experienced something similar. No, I didn't live in a mental institution all my life, but the pain and heartache is the same, it's excruciating, at the loss of a lover, a family member including pets , and especially the loss of your child. At the same time the movie brought pain, it also brought healing.Many movies can be confusing at first, and some stay that way until the very end. <more>
This was not confusing at all, you just needed to follow along, and know that eventually that everything will be clear and fit into place.An awesome movie, exceptional acting, and the music is beautiful, especially the end title "The Cry Inside," written by Brian Byrne and performed by Kelly Clarkson. It was absolutely gorgeous, a masterpiece. Listening to it, and paying attention to the lyrics, is what finally broke me...I sobbed"The Cry Inside" never goes away. Rose Kennedy explained it as follows ~"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds,' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone."

Sebastian Barry's brilliant novel SECRET SCRIPTURE has been transformed into an eloquent touching film Johnny Ferguson and Director Jim Sheridan. With moody cinematography by Mikhail Krichman and a musical score by Brian Byrne with a lot of help from Beethoven and a perfect cast of actors, this radiantly beautiful film should satisfy a large audience – those who love period pieces, Ireland, sweet romance, ad twists of plot. Roseanne McNulty Vanessa Redgrave must vacate the soon-to-be demolished mental institution in Roscommon, Ireland that she's called home for over 50 years. <more>
The hospital's psychiatrist, Dr. William Grene Eric Bana is called in to assess her condition. He finds himself intrigued by Roseanne's seemingly inscrutable rituals and tics, and her fierce attachment to her Bible, which she has over the decades transformed into a palimpsest of scripture, drawings, and cryptic diary entries. As Grene delves deeper into Roseanne's past, we see her as the young woman Rose Rooney Mara , whose charisma proves seductive. We learn that she moved to Sligo to work in her aunt's café, fell in love with a dashing fighter pilot Michael McNulty Jack Reynor , and that a local priest Father Gaunt Theo James fell tragically in love with her. The elderly Lady Rose is institutionalized because it was rumored that she murdered her only child at childbirth. Dr Grene and a nurse Susan Lynch are supportive of Lady Rose as the story unfolds in the most sensitive manner.There is much to be praised in this film – the manner in which the conflict between the Irish and the British altered personal lives and relationships, the horrors of the early 20th century insane asylums, the struggle Catholics priests at times endure with their celibacy vows, and the beauty of Ireland – but the cast is so fine that they shine with this material. This is a very fine film.
What a great movie.If you liked The Notebook and know a bit about the conflict between the Republic of Ireland and Britain, it's a must see.Terrific cast - Vanessa Redgrave Call the Midwife , Eric Bana, Theo James Divergent , Aidan Turner Poldark , Rooney Mara Lion , Adrian Dunbar Line Of Duty , Jack Reynor - very fitting music and very emotional.There were a couple of times when I wished documents had stayed on the screen slightly longer so that I could have read the contents but that won't be a problem when the Blu-ray and DVD come out, which I'll definitely be adding to my <more>
Just caught the Gala premiere at TIFF and was stunned by this film.Vanessa Redgrave and Rooney Mara play older and younger versions of Rose Clear, a woman out of place and out of mind in WWII Ireland. The film is based on the novel of the same name. The acting in the film is beautiful. Director Jim Sheridan called VR a legend in his introduction to the film and the crowd gave her a standing O at the end. Mara does the incredible job of matching her beat for beat. Theo James who I've only ever seen in the getting- worse-by-the-minute Divergent series is downright terrifying as the priest <more>
who becomes obsessed with Rose. The photography and direction are top notch as well, and take full advantage of Ireland's natural beauty.Only criticism is that the plot may be hard to follow if one isn't familiar with the details of Irish/British history. It also becomes a bit predictable, but by the time revelations are made the tears are already flowing so all is forgiven. Otherwise, the story weaves really nicely through the intricacies of being a single woman in that particular time and place. The material is heavy, and rightly so. It's interesting to note the contrast between the way women are treated in the film and the way the plot is so female driven and the two female leads are clearly so respected and credited by their director.Between this, Una and Lion I wouldn't be surprised to see multiple Oscar nods for Mara.
It was very well done and kept my interest. Even gave me the "feels"
Excellent but disturbing movie (by tmaryso)
Absorbing and disturbing. Women were abused in this way many times. Put in mental hospitals on whims of church and of men. The acting was amazing! I am glad I stumbled upon this movie and watched it!
A shocking tale of abuse (by Gordon-11)
This film tells the story of a psychiatrist in Ireland, who is sent to a hospital by the Church to evaluate a woman who has been locked up in a psychiatric hospital for the past 40 years."The Secret Scripture" begins very slowly, and for a while I thought it wanted to be "The Notebook". It turned out not to be the case, as the plot unfolded to become a shocking story of power abuse. How the perpetrator was capable of doing such inhuman things was simply beyond me. How he lived with his conscience for 40 years was shocking as well. I managed to guess the ending before the <more>
obvious clues were given, but seeing such a satisfactory ending drove me to tears. It was really touching to see the ending, even though justice arrived in an untimely manner.
The never-ending struggle for women in the male dominated world! (by Reno-Rangan)
This is a surprise film. Almost my favourite. Because I don't know when the last time I wetted my eyes. I'm not ashamed to say that I love sentimental films. This was not like a thorough tearjerker, but it gets there at some point. It was like I have been waiting for such film a very long time, so that I ended up liking it more than I was anticipating.An Irish-English language film with a wonderful cast. Because of those actors I have watched it, despite it was not promoted big like the Hollywood films. It's not in the mainstream films list. That's why not many people do not <more>
know about this film. Rooney Mara's one of the best performances. The remaining cast too had big roles, but was not powerful as hers.Films has genres, books has genres, but not all of those works converted to each other form works out. This is such a rare genre where both formats triumphs. Watching this film is almost as experience of reading the book. You know those literatures explaining the events, character deeply, emotionally, that's quite matching in this film with beautiful locations and nice background score.The suspense kept me expecting every moment of my watch. The end twist was not that difficult, but not all the viewers can predict it easily. It is a tale from the first half of the 20th century. But most of it was split into early and the later events. Overwhelmed by the flashback, the film reveals an old and a last woman in a mental asylum to evacuate the building to a new location. So those last moments of her stay in there, she explains why she's refusing to leave.-xX] There's a sickness in people that stops them seeing the truth. [Xx-A doctor from another place is now reviewing her case, has to go through her story to understand the situation and act accordingly, that's accompanied by a nurse. So she reveals her secret romance when she was young, when the whole town turned against her. Particularly a young priest. How she had ended up in the mental hospital, and after 40 years, now denying to leave the building. The story ends emotionally.The film was like the mix of 'The Little Prince' and 'Neverwas'. Because the reality and the other way around were nicely put together. Only it all were told from the grown up's perspective. They are showing something means does not you have to believe it. So it all comes to the final twist, how it ends by revealing what. No doubt if it resembles someone's real life, perhaps in the past, because in the earlier centuries, such fate, particularly for women is so common. That's where it's heart-wrenching.A perfect title for what it narrated. The older version of the lead role was too well performed. The romance part was short, but mystery extended till the final scene. Overall, the focus given to what to narrate and what not were nicely done. A very satisfying film, glad that I saw it.I don't know everybody would like it as much I did, but surely worth a try. Since the story was told from a woman's point of view about her struggle in the men dominated world, they might like it better than others. Because, as I know in the recent, the women's empowerment rising to equal men than never before. All I say is, just watch it!8.5/10
I liked the movie but there are some gaps in the plot and the events that doesn't make sense. it's such a coincidence that the doctor who arrives in the hospital is surprisingly getting interested in one of the patients and listens to her story. Later he discovers that this woman is his mother. Acting and directing is excellent in the movie. Rooney Mara plays her role very well like Vanessa Redgrave. I liked that the plot is twisted and we don't know what actually happened till the end.Overall I liked the movie and it's worth to see for once.
