English/French with English subtitles / 80 minutes

In 1962, François Truffaut conducted a week-long interview
with Alfred Hitchcock. The resulting book, Hitchcock/Truffaut,
remains one of the most influential cinema publications ever
written. This documentary deepens the legacy of the project,
bringing in contemporary directors to discuss both Truffaut’s book and  Hitchcock’s films. Blending insights from such luminaries as Martin Scorsese, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, and David Fincher with the original  audio recordings of Hitchcock and Truffaut’s interviews
and a generous helping of film clips, this is a fascinating dialogue across generations.

In 1950s Ireland, young Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) decides to leave her homeland to look for new opportunities. Across the ocean, Eilis starts to make a place for herself with the help of her landlady (Julie Walters) and an Irish priest (Jim Broadbent), and finds romance with Italian-American Tony (Emory Cohen). When Eilis is compelled to return to Ireland, she is surprised to discover that the hardships that previously seemed insurmountable inhibit her no longer. Poignant and gorgeously realized, Brooklyn is an exquisitely crafted story about family, memory, and the places we call home.
