13 Powerful Stills From Brooklyn (2015)

    Saoirse Ronan was nominated for an Academy Award in her role as Eilis Lacey in John Crowley’s Brooklyn. A timely, nostalgic film, Brooklyn takes place in 1950s Brooklyn. Young Eilis has relocated from her home country of Ireland to find a much freer lifestyle in the U.S. She quickly finds herself caught in a romance with Tony (Emory Cohen), who is of Italian descent, while another suitor (Domhnall Gleeson) waits back home.

    The sparse story is strewn with lingering close-ups of Ronan’s captivating eyes, and the film’s strength might just lie in her incredible capacity to express emotion. Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent also star.
    Here are thirteen powerful stills from Brooklyn.
