‘Two quietly epic performances…..don’t miss it.’
Emer O Kelly, Sunday Independent
Two elderly farmers, Eamon and Nashee, meet at a gate on a remote
hillside. These men are old friends, old rivals, old neighbours.
Their conversation is a throwback to a gentler time but there’s nothing
gentle about today’s conversation as they are forced to confront each
other with some heartbreaking truths that test their friendship to its
limit. After today, will they ever again talk on this hillside?
‘The Quiet Land’ is a celebration of the humour, resilience and endearing
innocence of an exiled generation as it struggles to survive in the isolated
rural Ireland of today. It is Malachy McKenna’s heartfelt tribute to a rare
breed of forgotten men who live a long way in off the road.
