Critic Reviews for Silent Grace

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

Assured helming by newcomer Maeve Murphy, unflagging pace, well-developed characters, and strong perfs throughout make for a solid if slightly old-fashioned meller.

Though well acted and concisely plotted, the film is not up to the events it engages -- but it's tough to imagine a film that would be.

February 9, 2006 | Full Review…

The movie boasts a strong lead in Orla Brady, but I have to say it didn't quite work for me.

April 23, 2005 | Full Review…

The performances have a conviction that still commands attention.

August 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Wonderfully humane, even-handed and quietly joyful.

August 22, 2018 | Full Review…

The first feature film written, produced and directed by Maeve Murphy, Silent Grace is an effectively low-key and slow-burning treatment of events that have faded into history.
