Have you seen Brooklyn? Saoirse Ronan’s just been nominated for an Oscar for it, and if you haven’t seen it, you should go NOW. It’s also been nominated for Best Picture..

A few months ago I interviewed Brooklyn’s director John Crowley. He’s from Cork, obviously. We discussed Saoirse’s Oscar hopes, among other things.
Listen back to the interview here.
