Trailer: Jim Sheridan’s “Secret Scripture”

Appearing and then effectively disappearing after a soft debut at the Toronto Film Festival this Fall, Irish helmer Jim Sheridan’s new work “The Secret Scripture” has yet to secure a U.S. release.

Overseas though the film has managed to land a few dates and today the first trailer is out for this adaptation of the novel by Sebastian Barry.

Rooney Mara, Vanessa Redgrave, Jack Reynor, Theo James, and Eric Bana star in the film about an elderly woman, committed to a mental hospital, reflecting on her life during the turbulent times of the 1930s and 1940s.
