While studying veterinary science at university, Rose decides to contact Ellen, her birth mother who gave her up for adoption. Ellen, now a successful actress, is reluctant to meet. Eventually, Rose’s tenacity pays off—but Ellen is forced to reveal a secret she has kept hidden for over 20 years.

MUBI's take

Rose Plays Julie is an icy revenge thriller from the brilliant Irish filmmaking duo Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor (Helen). With a tightly-coiled lead performance from Ann Skelly, this slippery exploration of doubling and identity offers a masterclass in contained suspense.
