Girl with Green Eyes (adapted from “The Lonely Girl”) details the exploits of naïve Co Clare teenager Kate Brady (a captivating Rita Tushingham) and her exuberant flatmate Baba Brennan (Lynn Redgrave) as they discover the temptations of Dublin city life including a doomed affair with an urbane middle-aged writer (Peter Finch). The film is particularly rewarding for its array of Dublin locations.
