Welcome to Saoirse Ronan Web. This is your best source dedicated to the talented Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. You may know her from her Oscar nominated role in "Atonement", "Hanna" or "The Lovely Bones" and more recently in "The Host", "How I Live Now" and "The Grand Budapest Hotel". We aim to provide you with the most comprehensive content on Saoirse and give you the latest news. Here you can find and learn (hopefully) everything on her including the latest news and high quality photos, in depth information, media streaming, fan features and more.

This is the first look at Saoirse Ronan in her dark new role – playing a kidnap victim in a harrowing new film.
The Carlow star plays an “emotionally stunted” woman who is abducted and held prisoner in movie Stockholm, Pennsylvania.

The film shows Saoirse’s character slowly begin to develop feelings for her kidnapper after several years held captive.

It also shows her failing to maintain a relationship with her family when she is released – echoing a number of high-profile real-life stories.
It will be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in America next month, which the 20-year-old filmed in just 19 days on a tiny budget.
She said: “It’s about a girl called Leia who’s in her early twenties. At the start she’s rescued, after seven years, from her kidnapper, who raised her in a basement.

“She has never seen the light of day until she is handed back to her biological parents in the second scene, but she doesn’t know these people.
“It’s mainly about the relationship between Leia and her mother, and how she doesn’t see why it’s wrong to be completely in love (in a childlike way) with her kidnapper, despite what he did.”

This year, Saoirse will also be seen in Brooklyn, which she filmed with Domhnall Gleeson.
