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]

"The film serves as an authentic examination of the mid-twentieth-century immigrant experience — and an intimate exploration of one woman's attempt to understand who she is and where she wants to belong."
- Nick Schager, Village Voice
"Colm Tóibín’s bitter-sweet novel of the Irish expat experience brought impeccably to the screen by Crowley and Hornby, with Saoirse Ronan excelling herself in the leaf."
- Phillip Kemp, Total Film
"A heartbreaking and poignant story about choices, country, commitments, sacrifice, and love, Brooklyn is a superb, luminous, and bittersweet portrayal of who we are, where we’ve come from, where we’re going, and the places we call home."
- Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
"Brooklyn is easily the year's best and most beguiling love story. The surprise is that it also goes deeper, sadder and truer."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Its beating heart is 21-year-old Saoirse Ronan, once the bright-eyed teen from Atonement but now, on evidence here, the most quietly expressive actor of her generation."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"A superb, emotionally turbulent account of a young Irishwoman's attempt to become an American in the early 1950s."
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
"Brooklyn is a story for anyone who has ever left home. It's a story for those who've waffled in indecision, for those forming their identities and forging their own paths. And it's one of the loveliest films to grace cinemas this year."
- Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
