Screen Two: All Things Bright and Beautiful (BBC-2 1994, Tom Wilkinson, Gabriel Byrne)

Tom Wilkinson, Gabriel Byrne and Kevin McNally star in this lyrical Irish TV movie set in County Tyronne, Northern Ireland, in 1954 – the year the Pope has dedicated to the devotion of the Blessed virgin Mary.

Grottos spring up in her honor across the country, except in Eglish where the appearance of a mysterious stranger heralds a vision of the Virgin herself.
