Brooklyn "Story" Featurette - Go behind the story with Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson, Emory Cohen #book2movies

My twitter friend Tess  @poet_teresa  is a huge Domhnall Gleeson fan. Correction, she’s obsessed. If there’s Domhnall Gleeson news, Tess knows it. Thanks to that obsession I’ve got a gorgeous new featurette to share before Brooklyn starring Saoirse Ronan, Domhnall Gleeson and Emory Cohen opens in theaters next week. [Scroll down to watch]

Sharing is caring

I’m grateful for Tess’s passion and that she shares her Domhnall Gleeson news with me. It makes doing this book to movie blog so much more fun when you guys get in the act. In fact if you’ve got news, pictures and videos on any book to movie adaptations I might have missed, I’m always eager to share and give you the credit. Like telling Tess thanks for forwarding the EW link with all these images shot by Kerry Brown!

And did I tell you I got an invite to a pre-release screening? Yeah, I know I did. I’ll share my thoughts after I see Brooklyn, but I do know that Tess, who has seen it, thought it was wonderful. To be honest, so long as Domhnall’s in it, she’s usually happy, which is fine by me. He’s a talented actor who is fast and furious becoming a pretty big deal. 

True to the book

If you’ve read Colm Toibin’s novel take a look at this featurette; you can tell the filmmakers got it right. The period look and feel, the clothing, the emotion of the film all look spot on.
