Fox Searchlight released the first trailer for the John Crowley-directed period drama “Brooklyn” on Thursday.
Saoirse Ronan plays Eilis Lacey, a young Irish woman who struggles to adjust to her new home in America. “I have a life halfway across the sea,” she says in the clip.
“Brooklyn” is based on the novel by Colm Toibin and follows a young woman in 1952 who travels to New York from Dublin and gets caught between two different cities and two different men.
Fox Searchlight acquired the film for $9 million at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
“Brooklyn” is set for a November release.
