Special Preview Screening! BROOKLYN


Special Brattle Film Foundation 15th Anniversary Event!

Co-Presented with the Boston Irish Film Festival!

(2015) dir John Crowley w/Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters [111 min; DCP]
BROOKLYN tells the 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 Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. With a screenplay by Nick Hornby (About a Boy, An Education, Wild) based on the novel by Colm Tóibín and an outstanding performance by Ronan that has already been deemed “Oscar-worthy,” BROOKLYN is sure to be a cinematic highlight of the season. Don’t miss your opportunity to see it first!

This screening is free and open to the public. No pass is required and seating will be distributed on a first-come-first-sat basis. Doors will open at 6:00pm.
