Based on the novel by Colm Tóibín, this romantic drama sees Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) leave the comfort of her mother’s home in Ireland to pursue the promise of 1950s America. After landing in New York City, she overcomes her homesickness and finds love as she settles into her new environment. But news from Ireland disrupts everything, forcing to choose between the two countries and the futures they offer.
Featuring a strong cast including Julie Walters, Domnhall Gleeson, and Jim Broadbent, and a script penned by award-winning author Nick Hornby, Brooklyn is a universal tale about a woman trying to find herself in two vastly different worlds.
