To celebrate the release of The Secret Scripture in cinemas March 24th we're giving you the chance to win a copy of the bestselling book by Sebastian Barry courtesy of Faber & Faber.
A Jim Sheridan film, The Secret Scripture is an adaptation of Sebastian Barry's Man Booker Prize-winning novel and stars Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara (Carol, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave, Eric Bana (Munich), Theo James (Insurgent) along with Jack Reynor (Glassland), Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (The Infiltrator).
It centres around Rose McNulty (Vanessa Redgrave), an elderly woman who has lived in state institutions for over 50 years. Despite her bleak surroundings there is a light in her eyes that cannot be extinguished. Dr. Stephen Grene (Eric Bana) is drawn to her, compelled to discover her past and help gain her freedom. Through Lady Rose's 'scripture', a life of extraordinary love and great injustice emerges, revealing a remarkable young woman of courage, whose only crime was to fall in love. Set against a backdrop of an emerging Irish state in the 1940's in which female sexuality and independence unsettled the colluding patriarchies of church and nationalist politics, we learn of her ultimate triumph.
The Secret Scripture will be released in Ireland by Wildcard Distribution on behalf of Vertigo releasing on March 24th 2017.
To be in with a chance to win a copy of The Secret Scripture book, simply answer the question correctly to be entered into the draw. Competition closes 7th April.
