Brooklyn is the story of a young woman, Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) who moves from small town Ireland to Brooklyn, NY where, unlike home, she has the opportunity for work and for a future - and love, in the form of Italian-American Tony (Emory Cohen). When a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland, she finds herself absorbed into her old community, but now with eligible Jim (Domhnall Gleeson) courting her. As she repeatedly postpones her return to America, Eilis finds herself confronting a terrible dilemma - a heart-breaking choice between two men and two countries.
ROSALIND AT BIG PICTURE SHOW SAYS: “A wonderful classic story. You feel Eilis emotions throughout the film, her homesickness when living in Brooklyn, her nervousness and excitement when she finds love and despair in the tough moments of the film. It also gives you an insight into how it must have been to be a new arrival to the Big Apple. I really loved this film and I would willingly watch it again and again!”
