Nuala at the PMA

So, I'm v interested to check this movie out, as I was familiar with Nuala O'Faolain's writings from my youth in Dublin. This is also an interesting show as there will be a Q&A with the filmmakers Patrick Farrelly and Kate O’Callaghan after the screening.

"In her late 50s Nuala O’Faolain wrote a memoir that sold a million copies and shocked the Irish public with its revelations of her sexual history and the bizarre manner of her upbringing. She was a woman of many, contradictory parts: the enthusiastic heterosexual whose most lasting relationship was with a radical lesbian activist; the feminist who adored a father who openly betrayed her mother and neglected his family. In 2008 she transfixed Ireland again when, ravaged by cancer, she turned to her friend and radio host Marian Finucane to talk frankly about her impending death. Nuala is Finucane’s journey of discovery into her friend’s life as well as a raw and vivid testimony to the enduring power of friendship"

“An intimate and compelling chronicle of a remarkable life. Nuala honors its subject’s passion for the written word no less than her passion for life. It doesn’t sugarcoat the emotional messiness of the unconventional life she created, which makes it all the more affecting as a portrait of exuberant dissent.” –The Hollywood Reporter

As ever, I will lurk in the lobby before and afterwards for those who wish to discuss the movie. For those of you with smartphones, the Meetup app does offer the option to check in, which I do use.

    An important family thing has come up for that day. Too bad, because this looked very interesting.
