Playing at this year’s British Film Festival ahead of its February release in Australia, Brooklyn is getting ready to roll out in the U.S. and to get the fires stoked three new clips have surfaced. Saoirse Ronan stars, in what should earn her an Oscar nomination, as a 1950’s Irish emigrant in the titular New York hood. Our Dickie has seen the film and you can read his review here.
Synopsis: Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
