(Dash Alschuler-Pierce) —

The Quiet Girl is a 2022 Irish film, spoken in Gaelic, centering on a shy, young girl in a chaotic, borderline abusive home, who stays with her loving cousins for the summer. The slice-of-life film documents her growth between her leaving home, and coming home. Directed by Colm Bairéad, the film is a heartwarming, tasteful, and well-crafted story, with subtle humor and charm. In an hour and 36 minutes, Bairéad manages to capture rural Ireland through a little girl's eyes. The small-budget film recently made headlines for its triumph at the Academy Awards this year, becoming the first Irish-language film to be nominated for Best International Feature. While losing to the equally outstanding film, All Quiet on The Western Front, The Quiet Girl is a huge step for Irish-language cinema.
