Directed by John Crowley, the movie tells the story of Ellis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Ellis departs Ireland from the comfort of her mother’s home for New York City. Initial homesickness diminishes as a fresh romance captivates her. But soon, her bright future is disrupted by her past, and Ellis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. 111 min.
