Seniors Matinee Movie

Showing: Brooklyn

BROOKLYN tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey, a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950’s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother’s home for the shores of New York City.  The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminishes, as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love.  But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis most choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
