Silent grace

Before Hunger there were a few other IRA-prisoner films. One was Silent Grace, told from the female perspective. A young girl arrives into the prison and gets put with the political prisoners. Some members object but the leader of the group accepts the girl. The male warden seems to have a 'thing' for the leader. Average movie that is alright in one sense but goes nowhere. The tensions and arguements between the women get tedious. Impressive in the sense that it's not as melodramatic as expected. Yet another prison movie filmed at Kilmainham.
