Colm Tóibín's ‘Brooklyn’ to Shoot at End of March
14 Mar 2014 : Aisling Newton
Colm Tóibín's upcoming movie ‘Brooklyn’, adapted from the 2009 novel of the same name, will begin shooting at the end of March in his native Enniscorthy.

Saoirse Ronan will play Eilis Lacey, a young Irish immigrant in 1950’s New York whose blossoming relationship with an Italian plumber Tony, played by Emory Cohen, is threatened when tragedy calls her home once more. Eilis decides returns to Ireland where her attraction for a charming local man called Jim, played by Domhnall Gleeson, grows. The film will also feature Julie Walters (Brave, Harry Potter) and Jim Broadbent (Gangs of New York, Cloud Atlas).

Up to 70 locals will take part in a wedding scene and a dance in a local hall scheduled to shoot for a week in Enniscorthy and Wexford. The remainder of the film will be shot in Dublin and Canada.

Represented by HanWay Films for international sales, last year ‘Brooklyn’ signed deals with Lionsgate UK for distribution in the UK & Ireland and Transmission for distribution rights in Australia & New Zealand.

Irish BAFTA-winning director John Crowley (Boy A, Intermission) will direct Nick Hornby’s adaptation of Tóibín’s acclaimed novel. His breakthrough film was 2003’s ‘Intermission’, starring Colin Farrell and Cillian Murphy, which won four IFTA awards for Best Director (Crowley), Best Irish Film, Best Script (Mark Rowe) and Best Supporting Actor (David Wilmot).

‘Brooklyn’ will be produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey of Wildgaze Films and co–produced by Alan Moloney in Parallel Films with finance from BBC Films and the Irish Film Board.

Ronan is currently starring in Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’, which is in Irish cinemas now:
