We are delighted to present the brand new sneak peak trailer for John Crowley’s incredible Brooklyn – one of our most favourite films of 2015.
After enjoying much success at the BFI London Film Festival last week (our full ★★★★★ review can be found here), the adaptation starring Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen , Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters is set to reach UK cinemas on 6th November.
Here’s the official synopsis from Lionsgate and BBC Films:
BROOKLYN is the story of Eilis, a young woman who moves from small-town Ireland to Brooklyn, NY where she strives to forge a new life for herself, finding work and first love in the process. When a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland, she finds herself confronting a terrible dilemma – a heart-breaking choice between two men and two countries.
Adapted from Colm Tóibín’s New York Times Bestseller by Nick Hornby (Oscar® nominee for An Education) and directed by John Crowley (Intermission, Boy A), BROOKLYN is produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey (Quartet, Oscar® nominees for An Education).
BROOKLYN stars Saoirse Ronan (The Grand Budapest Hotel and Oscar® nominee for Atonement), Domhnall Gleeson (About Time, Anna Karenina), Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond The Pines), Jim Broadbent (Oscar® winner for Iris) and Julie Walters (Oscar® nominee for Billy Elliot and Educating Rita).
Production design is by François Séguin (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Emmy nominated for The Borgias) and Yves Bélanger (Wild, Dallas Buyers Club) is Director of Photography. Costumes are by Odile Dicks-Mireaux (The Constant Gardener and BAFTA® nominee for An Education) with make-up design by Morna Ferguson (Calvary, In America). BROOKLYN was filmed for three weeks in 2014 in Enniscorthy, Wexford and Dublin, Ireland, before moving to Montreal, Canada for a further four weeks.
