Director: John Crowley • Ireland, UK
Brooklyn tells the moving story of Eilis (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs the comfort of Ireland for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish under the spell of a fresh romance, but unexpected developments force her to choose between her family’s home and her adopted land.
