Based on true events, Irish social drama Out of Innocence tells the story of a woman, who af-ter giving birth to a stillborn baby, is accused of murdering the child. Although Out of Innocence is a fictional film, it is very much rooted in Ireland’s troubled his-tory as a country torn between Church and State, particularly examining the effect these con-flicts had on individual lives. Set at the turn of the century, the film captures the fear and anx-iety that surrounded the topic of abortion at a time when the debates that continue to rage to-day were only just beginning. The many lingering long shots that capture the peaceful and picturesque landscape of Ireland draw attention to the stark contrast to the tragic reality of the particular case examined and for many women in the country at the time. Writer/Director Danny Hiller lays bare the roots of Ireland’s still prevalent abortion debates in a film that isn’t always easy to watch with brilliant central performances by Fiona Shaw and Alun Armstrong.
