Description

Saoirse Ronan and Domhnall Gleeson star in this romantic drama adapted from the novel by Colm Tóibín.

Set in the 1950s, the story follows young Irish woman Ellis Lacey (Ronan) as she travels to New York City in search of a better life.

Initially homesick, she begins to adjust to her new surroundings with the help of Italian-American Tony Fiorello (Emory Cohen) with whom she becomes romantically involved.

After news of a family crisis, Ellis returns to Ireland where she enjoys spending time back in her hometown and becomes acquainted with a young man, Jim Farrell (Gleeson), finding herself torn between two very different paths.

The cast also includes Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters.

The film was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Picture and won the BAFTA Award for Best British Film.
