Brooklyn + Dinner
A young girl is forced to choose between her two lives on either side of the Atlantic
Fancy a different cinema experience? Then why not get down to Roxy's Bar And Screen and catch great new films, served up with a side of modern European food. With an emphasis on healthy ingredients from the nearby food market – think homemade burgers and perfectly cooked steaks – it's a step up from your everyday Multiplex outing. For this screening, catch Saoirse Ronan come-of-age in this period drama that is equal parts emotional and intelligent. Brooklyn tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse), an Irish immigrant trying to ground herself in '50s Brooklyn. Her initial homesickness soon evaporates as she falls for an American love interest, but her past soon re-emerges, leaving her forced to choose between two different countries.
