DREAMING THE QUIET MAN
Though long considered one of director John Ford's finest films, a commercial success and a touchstone of Irish-American identity, Ford endured twenty years of rejection from the studios before he got THE QUIET MAN made, and the authenticity of its representation of the Irish has come under critical scrutiny. Returning to the film's locations in County Mayo and Ford's ancestral homeland of Connemara, Sé Merry Doyle's documentary investigates THE QUIET MAN's fascinating history and legacy, featuring interviews with Ford aficionados and collaborators including Peter Bogdanovich, Martin Scorsese, Jim Sheridan, Gabriel Byrne and Maureen O'Hara.
