Bonjour from BROOKLYN starring Saoirse Ronan: The French-dubbed trailer #book2movies

Voila, the bande-annonce (français for trailer) for Brooklyn, dubbed in French. 
Hearing Saoirse Ronan speaking French as the young woman who emigrates from her home in Ireland to New York, can’t help but remind us that Eilis’ story could just as easily have been the story of a French girl from Paris or indeed the story of a girl from Italy, Poland, Germany or Viet Nam. And indeed, Mr. Trump, it could be the story of a girl from Jalisco, Mexico or Damascus, Syria. 

We are, have always been, and shall continue to be, a nation of immigrants. N’est-ce pas

  1. I have to admit that I've been prejudiced against this book and movie. I hate that men write a love story and it's considered literary fiction while women write a love story and it's called a simple romance. The videography and costumes in this trailer look amazing though. I'm tempted. Maybe I'll just see it in French, even though I didn't understand very much, except "Splash!"
    Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. I can always count on you.

    1. That’s true but actually I wasn’t a huge fan of the book; it was really much dryer and lacking in that romance. Maybe it needed a feminine touch! Nicky Hornby’s screenplay was one of those rare, better than the book, adaptations.
