Following a screening at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week, Fox Searchlight announced Brooklyn, the new film about about an Irish immigrant coming to 1950s New York City, will open in select theaters Nov. 4. This marks a two-day bump up for the film’s release.

Saoirse Ronan plays Ellis Lacey, a young Irish woman who heads to America after World War II and falls in love with an Italian man (Domnhall Gleeson) from Coney Island. As the romance heats up, Ellis’s past begins to surface and she must choose between her old home and newfound happiness.

Nick Hornby adapted the screenplay from on Colm Tóibín’s novel Brooklyn, and  John Crowley directs the period drama. The film premiered at Sundance in January.
