Voltage Pictures has released a new trailer for Jim Sheridan’s upcoming drama The Secret Scripture. Based on Sebastian Barry’s acclaimed novel of the same name, the film centers on Roseanne McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave/Rooney Mara), a once vibrant and lively beauty in her youth, who has spent the majority of her adult life confined to a mental hospital in rural Ireland. She has been institutionalized for so long, no one seems to remember why she was hospitalized in the first place. When a new chief psychiatrist, Dr. Greene, arrives, he takes a keen interest in Roseanne. He finds a hidden memoir, written over the course of decades by Roseanne, which unravels the mystery of her incarceration, as well as telling the tale of her passionate, yet tortured, life.”
Eric Bana, Jack Reynor, Theo James and Aidan Turner also star. The film does not currently have a North American release date. Trailer courtesy of Voltage.
