The Secret Life Of Words < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Spain / Ireland 2005 • Directed by Isabel Coixet • Feature Film • 115 minutes

“The Secret Life Of Words” is an intensely perceptive, cathartic love story about the need for human interdependence and the power of silence and speech to transcend trauma. Hanna (Sarah Polley), a mysterious young nurse, accepts a job caring for Josef (Tim Robbins), a burn victim, on an oil rig in the Irish Sea. As Hanna tends to Josef’s wounds, it becomes clear he’s desperate to divulge secrets–as if words and transparency will free him from his sightless, immobile state. Meanwhile, Hanna remains silent, listening but revealing little. Incrementally, a sense of mutual recognition and empathy unfolds between them, gently evaporating shields of distrust and cynicism.
