Brooklyn (2015)


In 1950's rural Ireland opportunities are scarce, particularly for young women like Eilis Lacey. When given the opportunity to emigrate to New York, Eilis knows she must go, leaving behind her mother, sister and home for the first time.

Brooklyn is Nick Hornby's adaption of Colm Tóibín's best-selling novel of the same name. It is the empowering story of one young woman's discovery of her own identity and how the choices you make can define the rest of your life. It explores the epic theme of 20th century immigration, what it means to uproot yourself into an alien culture, how that changes you, and what remains steadfastly the same.
