New International Trailer for Indie 'Brooklyn' Starring Saoirse Ronan
"Secret is to look as though you know what you're doing." Transmission Films out of Australia has debuted a new trailer for the indie romance film Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan as a young Irish girl in 1950s Brookyln. From the early buzz this is supposed to be one of the better films of the year, as it first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is playing at TIFF, New York and the London Film Festivals. Emory Cohen and Domhnall Gleeson star as her two lovers, from two different places, and they're both featured on the UK poster seen below. The official US trailer is a bit different but features most of the same footage.
Here's the latest trailer from Australia for John Crowley's Brooklyn, direct from Transmission's YouTube:
Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Ronan), 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. Brooklyn is directed by John Crowley, of Closed Circuit and Boy A previously. The screenplay is written by Nick Hornby, based on Colm Tóibín's novel. Fox Searchlight will open Brooklyn in select theaters starting November 6th this fall.
