Fox Searchlight has set an awards season release for “Brooklyn,” slotting the Saoirse Ronan drama for a Nov. 6 launch.
“Brooklyn,” the story of an immigrant’s journey to New York, was bought during Sundance for $9 million following its Jan. 25 premiere at the festival.
Ronan plays a native of Ireland who leaves for Brooklyn in 1952. The movie was directed by John Crowley and adapted by Nick Hornby from the novel written by Colm Toibin.
Producers are Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey. Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters also star.
