Nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actress, Brooklyn is an adaptation of Colm Toibin’s beloved novel tells the story of a young Irish immigrant who is lured by the promise of America but must choose between two countries, and two men. Saoirse Ronan received her second Academy Award nomination (after Atonement) for her lovely performance. On January 27. 2016, Ronan appeared in person at Museum of the Moving Image for a Q&A following a screening of the film.
