Brooklyn is an upcoming Irish romantic comedy film directed by John Crowley and script written by Nick Hornby, based on the novel of the same name by Colm Tóibín. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters.


During the 1950s, a young woman, Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) moves from a small town in Ireland to Brooklyn, where she has the opportunity for work, for a future and for love, in the form of Italian-American Tony (Emory Cohen).




The principal photography of the film has begun on April 1, 2014 in Ireland, which will be shot for three weeks at different locations include Enniscorthy, Wexford and Dublin.[1][2][3] After finishing the production in Ireland, the production will then move to Montreal, Canada for a four weeks further shoot.[2] On the first day of shooting, Ronan was spotted in period costume on the set in Enniscorthy.[4][5]
