Brooklyn


Screening at 7pm Thu Jan 7th to Sun Jan 10th, and special 4pm matinee on Sun Jan 10th

Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse 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 Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

This is an old-fashioned entertainment, but one so masterfully crafted and heartfelt that it’s hard not to love. - Noel Murray, A.V. Club

Brooklyn unfolds almost like a prim Victorian novel, presenting a young Irish woman, nobly brought to life by Saoirse Ronan, torn between two lovers. - Peter Debruge, Variety

The film Brooklyn is a study in homesickness, which in this case means you ache for a place that, once upon a time, you were aching to leave. - David Edelstein, Vulture

It summons up a full life in a fable about happiness—pursuing it, achieving it. And bestowing it; the film made me happy too. - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
