Drama, Romance, Irish Film 1h 57m 2018

The Irish-American emigrant experience is brought vividly to life in this beautifully crafted, exceptionally moving adaptation of Colm Tóibín’s much admired novel. It’s 1952 and Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) is part of a wave of young Irish people that left their home for the prospect of a better future in America. Quickly adjusting to the rhythms of Brooklyn life – with the help of worldly-wise landlady Julie Walters – she finds a job, friends and a prospective partner in sweet Italian boy Tony (Emory Cohen).

News from home forces her back across the Atlantic to Enniscorthy where she falls, quite unexpectedly, for eligible bachelor Jim Farrell (Domhnall Gleeson). A choice will have to be made between Tony and Jim, a decision that has as much to do with choosing between two countries.

Nominated - Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay, Academy Awards.
