 In honor of March as Women's History month and St. Patrick's Day, the Somers Library Movie Matinee Series meets in person to view “Brooklyn,” one of the classic movies of all time. Set in Ireland, early 1950s. Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan) is a young woman working in a grocery shop. She has greater ambitions and moves to Brooklyn, New York, leaving her mother and sister behind. She is terribly homesick but eventually settles down, finding a job, studying to be a bookkeeper and meeting a nice young Italian man. Things are going well, but then she learns that Rose has died, and decides to return to Ireland, temporarily. She and Tony hastily get married, and then she sets off back to Ireland, alone. Life is about to get complicated. Join us to share movie trivia and light refreshments with your coffee or tea. Movies selected are based on: monthly themes, quality and ratings, length not to exceed two hours, and feedback/suggestions from participants.
