Lionsgate has released a brand new trailer and poster for the critically acclaimed Brooklyn this week, and they couldn’t be more beautiful.
Another one of the most anticipated novel adaptations of 2015, this time from author Colm Tóibín, Brooklyn is a heart-breaking story set in the early 1950s, and stars star Saoirse Ronan (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Domhnall Gleeson (About Time), Emory Cohen (The Place Beyond The Pines), Jim Broadbent (Iris), and Julie Walters (Billy Elliot).
Directed by John Crowley (Intermission), the film sees Ronan lead as a young Irish woman who moves to Brooklyn, finding herself confronted by a heart-breaking choice between two men and two countries.
The new trailer is stunning, and as fantastic as Ronan already is, she looks incredibly sophisticated in these two minutes of footage, so this is definitely for a film to see for its performances, as well as for the powerful romantic story.
The new poster then sees Ronan alongside her supporting males, Domhnall Gleeson and Emory Cohen, which make one fantastic leading cast. You can view the poster on Filmoria, and the trailer below:
Set in the early 1950s, 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 shape 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.
Brooklyn is set to be released in November.
