Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) is a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. [Fox Searchlight Pictures]
Insider’s tip: “Crowley and his creative team . . . build a cinematic snow-globe of nostalgia, a portrait of two worlds that aches with family lost and freedoms found. It is a beautiful film to experience” (Ty Burr, Boston Globe). Calvin Wilson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch adds: “If you think they don’t make movies like they used to, Brooklyn is glorious proof to the contrary.” The film has garnered six BAFTA nominations, including Best Actress for Saoirse Ronan, who was also nominated for a Golden Globe in the same category, as well as three Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture.
