Brooklyn – coming to a cinema near you soon!

“Brooklyn” the movie based on the novel by Colm Tóibín and largely shot in the South East – principally in Enniscorthy – is due to hit cinema screens in November. Directed by John Crowley (Intermission and Boy A) and script-written by Nick Hornby, the movie should appeal to fans of Maeve Binchy movies such as “Circle of Friends” and “The Lilac Bus”.

Brooklyn opens in 1950s rural Ireland, where opportunities are scarce, particularly for young women like Eilis Lacey played by rising star – Saoirse Ronan. 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. The film also stars Emory Cohen, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent.

Much of the film was shot on the street below my sitting room window and my ex. had a part as an extra – so we are all holding our breath to see whether or not she ended up in the movie or the cutting room floor. She’s not in the official trailer below. Enjoy!
