Rooney Mara and Jack Reynor filmed scenes for their upcoming feature The Secret Scripture in Dublin, Ireland, Thursday.

Rooney Mara, Jack Reynor Shoot ‘The Secret Scripture’

Mara sat behind Reynor on a motorcycle with her arms wrapped around his waist during the day filming The Secret Scripture, which has director Jim Sheridan at the helm. The pair rode over the sand dunes of Dollymount Strand in North Dublin as the cameras followed, both equipped with white helmets.

The Secret Scripture is an adaptation of  Sebastian Barry novel of the same name that tells the story of an elderly woman named Roseanne who reflects on her 50-year stint in a mental institution. Mara is playing the younger version of Vanessa Redgrave‘s character, who’d kept a diary of her long stay at the hospital in Ireland.

In addition to Mara and Reynor, who plays love interest Michael Eneas, the cast includes Eric Bana, Jeremy Irons and Divergent actor Theo James. Bana plays a doctor looking into Roseanne’s case, while James plays a local Catholic priest. Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Jessica Chastain were both reportedly slated to star in the film, but had to bow out due to scheduling conflicts.
