Brooklyn is set in 1950s Ireland and New York, where young Ellis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) has to choose between two men and two countries. Sounds a bit like time travel comedy Goodnight Sweetheart, but isn’t anything to do with temperal displacement and instead looks like a tedious period drama where you really don’t care which bloke she picks.
The film also stars Domhnall Gleeson, Michael Zegen, Emory Cohen, Mary O’Driscoll and Julie Walters.
If Brooklyn sounds like you’re sort of thing then it’s released in the UK on November 6th.
