Join us for a free preview of Brooklyn.
Director: John Crowley.
Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. Ireland/UK 2015. 112 mins.
Set in the 1950s, when Irish economic migration was at its height, this good-hearted adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s bestseller stars Saoirse Ronan as Eilis Lacey, who leaves rural Wexford for a menial job and a rackety boarding house in Brooklyn, New York. Run by the sharp-tongued Mrs Kehoe (Walters, hilarious), her new digs lead to a mutually supportive relationship with a local priest (an avuncular Jim Broadbent), chaste church socials, and eventually a romance with Tony, an Irish-American boy (Emory Cohen).
Ultimately Eilis has to choose between her new love and a beau back home (Gleeson), and between the life she left in Ireland and the one unfolding in the New World. Nick Hornby’s sensitive but never syrupy screenplay is perceptively implemented by director John Crowley.
