ABOUT THE FILM
Nuala is a fascinating portrait of Irish writer/TV producer/activist/media personality Nuala O’Foalain, by her close friend Marion Finucane. Nuala was a “tidal wave” of a woman, with a huge appetite for life and a complex, challenging personality. She was equally voracious with books and lovers, wrote an autobiography that shocked Ireland and became an international best-seller, rejected the control of a patriarchal society, and became an active feminist, but her intellectual successes were shadowed by difficulties in relationships. Faced with cancer, she again opened her life and thoughts to the public in a final radio interview.
