Roseanne McNulty must vacate the soon-to-be demolished mental institution in Roscommon, Ireland that she's called home for over 50 years. The hospital's psychiatrist, Dr. William Grene, 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 a young woman, 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, and that a local priest fell tragically in love with her.Written by

When Michael prepares to leave Rose and re-join the war, he dresses in his formal uniform and prepares to go. But he hasn't shaved, which is part of the look of the actor who plays him (Jack Reynor) and not "regulation" for the services during World War II. See more »

I came upon this movie by accident, I had never heard of this movie so I looked it up and read some of the reviews and a lot of them were excellent and some were not so good so I decided to watch it and give it a chance. This movie was so touching. I could totally see this happening back then when the story line had taking place. I cried at the end of the movie. It touched my heart. I would totally suggest you watch it.
