Fox Searchlight is moving the theatrical release of period drama “Brooklyn” up by two days, the studio announced Thursday.
The film, which the distributor acquired for $9 million at the Sundance Film Festival, will hit theaters on Nov. 4 instead of Nov. 6.
The movie tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Ronan), a young Irish immigrant living in Brooklyn during the 1950s. She left Ireland for New York City, and the initial feelings of homesickness disappear when a fresh romance sweeps Eilis off her feet — but soon, her past catches up to her and Eilis must choose between her two lives.
Nick Hornby wrote the screenplay and Alan Moloney executive produced.
