As we head into Oscar season, one of the eagerly anticipated offerings of the week's ahead is the John Crowley directed "Brooklyn", starring Saoirse Ronan and Julie Walters and features a script by novelist Nick Hornby.

The film tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), "a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s 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 diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within."

"Brooklyn" opens in select theaters nationwide on November 4th.   Hitfix is proud to feature this exclusive clip starring one of the brightest young actresses working today.
