PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
An Irish immigrant lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a romance with a local. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
In the book, Eilis is the youngest of five children; she has three older brothers who left Ireland to find work in England. The film makes no mention of her brothers and only includes her sister, Rose.
Miss Kelly wants to talk to you later.
Mary Lacey: Not if what you're going to say will cause trouble for me in some way or another.
Eilis is told by her priest that he's paid for her to take a bookkeeping course at Brooklyn College, but in the 1950s, tuition was free at Brooklyn College.
