The Movie ‘Brooklyn’ With Actress Saoirse Ronan

Fox Searchlight Pictures, brings the historical drama film ‘Brooklyn’ to theaters this November starring Irish-American actress, Saoirse Ronan.

Based on the book by Colm Tóibín of the same name, Director John Crowley tells the “profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn”.

If you don’t know who Saoirse Ronan is, you may remember her as the 13-year-old Briony Tallis in the Oscar winning film, Atonement. Having appeared in over a dozen movies since then, the now 21 year old, New York born-Irish raised actress is well on her way to stardom with her amazing performances.

In Brooklyn, Ronan plays Eilis Lacey, a young woman who leaves her homeland of Ireland in search of the promises of America. While trying to overcome her homesickness, she falls for a young Italian boy named, Antonio “Tony” Fiorello.

When issues back home require her to return, another suitor comes calling by the name of Jim Farrell. Farrell is played by fellow Irish actor, writer and director Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter, About Time, Unbroken).
