The Return of Jim Sheridan: An Evening at Audi Dublin International Film Festival (ADIFF)

The beginning of the Audi Dublin International Film Festival (ADIFF), saw the Savoy’s red carpet dusted off and rolled out onto O’Connell St on Saturday night for guests and stars to attend the Irish premiere of The Secret Scripture, Jim Sheridan’s latest directorial work has been a long awaited return to his homeland’s material, with this being his first Irish offering in the best part of 20 years. Among the revellers in attendance were stars of the film, Australian actor Eric Bana, Susan Lynch and Sheridan himself. All three partook in a Q&A following the screening, but not before introducing the film to a roar of cheers and whistles, to which Sheridan quipped “I didn’t know Eric Bana was that popular.”
