An emotional trailer has been released for John Crowley’s “Brooklyn,” a period romance drama based on Colm Tóibín’s 2009 novel of the same name. 

The film follows a young Irish immigrant (Saoirse Ronan) navigating a new life alone in Brooklyn amidst casual racism, culture shock and new experiences brought by a 1950’s New York City that is vastly different from her life back home. A newfound romance with an Italian-American boy (Emory Cohen), however, soon rids her of her homesickness — until something back in Ireland tears her between her budding love in Brooklyn and the comfort of her past life in Ireland. The tender story also stars Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters.  

Watch the trailer above. “Brooklyn” will be in theaters this fall.
