Some secrets are too powerful to keep
We’ve once again secured a special advanced preview screening ahead of its national release.
Two very different women who fall in love in this, 1950s set, captivating adaptation of Fiona Shaw’s beloved novel.
Anna Paquin(True Blood, X-Men) plays Dr Jean Markham, who comes home to the small Scottish town she left long ago,to take over her late father’s practice. But not everyone is pleased to see her return.
Striking up a friendship with Lydia (Holliday Grainger – Jayne Ayre, The Borgias), the mother of one of her young patients, Jean marvels at the woman’s vivaciousness, unaware it’s a mask Lydia wears to hide her rapidly deteriorating home life.
When she discovers Lydia has been abandoned by her husband and is unable to pay the rent, Jean offers Lydia a job and a place to say. Soon their tender friendship evolves into a passionate love affair, one that puts them in danger from the closed-minded community around them.
Can their love survive?
