Sustaining Sundance buzz for a year all the way to the Oscars isn’t easy, but it has been done, and Fox Searchlight certainly has the track record to back it up. The studio has taken films like “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Beasts Of The Southern Wild” the distance, and this year the same will be done with “Brooklyn.” Ahead of a busy fall promoting the movie, the first clip has arrived.
Saorise Ronan leads the adaptation of Colm Toibin‘s book for the screen by Nick Hornby, which concerns a young girl’s immigrant experience in the United States, as she makes her way through Brooklyn in the 1950s. Love, loss and homesickness all come into play, and you can see the river of emotions that pass through the lead character Eilis Lacey when she receives a letter from home.
Likely to appear at the Telluride Film Festival, and already slated for the Toronto International Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival, “Brooklyn” opens on November 6th. Watch below.
