It is Ireland in the early 1950s and for Eilis Lacey, as for so many young Irish girls, opportunities are scarce. So when her sister arranges for her to emigrate to New York, Eilis knows she must go. Arriving in a crowded lodging house in Brooklyn, Eilis can only be reminded of what she has sacrificed. And just as she takes tentative steps towards friendship, and perhaps something more, Eilis receives news which sends her back to Ireland. There she will be confronted by a terrible dilemma -a devastating choice between duty and one great love.

From the producers of An Education comes a heartbreaking adaptation of a much-loved novel, with a screenplay by Nick Hornby (Oscar® nominee for ‘An Education’) directed by John Crowley (‘Intermission’, ‘Boy A’)and an incredible cast including Saoirse Ronan, Domnhall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters.  The international film will be released by Lionsgate UK on 6th November 2015 in the UK & Ireland and FOX in the US.
