Part of Depot's Book to Film Club
Young Irish immigrant Eilis Lace navigates 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 past disrupts her new vivacity, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
'Those who discover the film, whether by design or accident, will be wooed by its subtle spell and enriched by its deceptively low-key charm' - Mark Kermode, Observer
