Brooklyn tells the moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. The novelty of her new life and love is soon disrupted by events at home and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives and men that exist within both. Sensitively adapted by Nick Hornby from Colm Toibin’s bestselling novel, Brooklyn exudes a magnificence using sumptuous cinematography that at once feels both old and new.
