Brooklyn

Drama
English

Set in the early 1950's, a young woman, Eilis, moves from small town Ireland to Brooklyn, NY where, unlike home, she has the opportunity for work and for a future - and love, in the shape of Italian-American Tony.  When a family tragedy brings her back to Ireland, she finds herself absorbed into her old community, but now with eligible Jim courting her.  As she repeatedly postpones her return to America, Eilis finds herself confronting a terrible dilemma - a heart-breaking choice between two men and two countries.
