Vanity Fair recently had a feature on ‘On Chesil Beach’ along with a new portrait of Saoirse and Billy Howle. You can view it right in our gallery.

With On Chesil Beach, which will be in theaters next month, Saoirse Ronan sustains an unbroken streak of acting excellence that has encompassed The Grand Budapest Hotel, Brooklyn, and Lady Bird. The film is set in the narrowest sliver of historical time, the immediately pre-youthquake Britain of 1962, when, as Ian McEwan writes in the novella upon which the movie is based, “to be young was a social encumbrance . . . a faintly embarrassing condition for which marriage was the beginning of a cure.”

But the picture, directed by Dominic Cooke and co-starring Billy Howle, is tender toward its virginal newlywed protagonists rather than mocking and mean. “Satire creates distance. I wanted the reader, and now the viewer, to get right up close to them,” says McEwan, who handled the screenplay adaptation himself.

In bearing and appearance—”certainly beautiful, but in a sculpted, strong-boned way,” as the book has it—Ronan is uncannily right for the role of Florence Ponting, the violinist who takes the hand (but not willingly much else) of her groom, Edward Mayhew. “The physicality of Florence is so important, because there is so much that isn’t said,” Ronan explains. “And Ian writes with such love and understanding. I don’t think there are many films that have tackled this subject this way. Usually, it’s either a caricature, like American Pie, or overly sentimental.”

February has been a great month for Saoirse fans so far, and to add to the list of good moments we have a new photoshoot and interview to AnOther Magazine! Check out the pictures in our gallery and read the article below:

When she stepped out in front of an audience of millions on Saturday Night Live last December, Saoirse Ronan began by setting the record straight on her endlessly mispronounced first name, with a musical ditty that explained “Saoirse” rhymes with “inertia”. With its Gaelic jumble of vowels, it’s been butchered in multiple ways by talk-show hosts and spellchecks across the globe. The Irish 23-year-old’s impish stint as ringleader on the legendary comedy show previously hosted by the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart was something of a clue to her currently soaring trajectory in Hollywood, but it was also the moment the gifted actress was finally allowed to be funny. With her ethereal looks, obsessive dedication and litmus-paper sensitivity on screen, most directors seem to have taken Ronan’s abilities too seriously to send comedies, or even just regular, messy teenage girls, her way. Carried onto a film set before she could walk, the actress christened “Meryl reborn” by Ryan Gosling has a habit of acting veterans twice her age off the screen, playing a kaleidoscopic range of strong, unpredictable characters and complicated misfits. There was the feral teen assassin raised in a frozen wilderness in Joe Wright’s Hanna; a southern gothic drifter in Ryan Gosling’s neon-drenched noir fairytale Lost River; a 200-year-old vampire in Neil Jordan’s Byzantium; a deeply homesick Irish immigrant in John Crowley’s Brooklyn; and the solemn upper-class English girl with impeccable clipped vowels whose single wicked lie precipitates tragedy in Atonement, a role that won her her first Oscar nomination aged just 13.

We’re starting February in the best possible way with a brand new Saoirse photoshoot, this time for The Sunday Times Style! Our gallery has been updated with six high quality images that were released with the interview -featuring her Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig- and you can read it below.

I hear the giggling before I get to the door of the suite in the Soho hotel in London, where I’m meeting Greta Gerwig, 34, and Saoirse Ronan, 23 — both “women of the moment” thanks to Gerwig’s much-hyped debut solo directorial film, Lady Bird. It’s a damp, cold Saturday evening and the pair haven’t seen each other since filming wrapped on the movie several months earlier. Right now, they’re sitting face to face, intertwined, on the sofa and holding hands. Legs tucked beneath them, they talk intensely and at a hundred miles an hour, Gerwig in her languid Californian drawl and Ronan in a — surprisingly broad — Irish brogue. It takes a good five minutes for them to stop reminiscing about their time on set and gossiping about recent projects and who has seen who since the movie wrapped and even notice I’m in the room.

There’s just something about Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird. Audiences’ love affair with the coming-of-age tale began at the Telluride Film Festival, where attendees were first charmed by this sharp, vivid, witty, and poignant story of a teenage girl (Saoirse Ronan) who is restless to leave her family home in Sacramento, California, for something bigger and better. What that exactly is, she’s not sure, but she’s convinced that it’s happening just beyond her reach. Her clashes with her mother (Laurie Metcalf), her relationship with her father (Tracy Letts), her intense friendship with her best friend (Beanie Feldstein), and her crushes (Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet) are all achingly relatable.

The Academy certainly agrees — earlier this week, Lady Bird racked up five Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress for Ronan, and Best Supporting Actress for Metcalf. Gerwig’s screenplay got a nod and she became just the fifth woman in Oscar’s 90-year history to crack Best Director (for her solo directorial debut, no less).

“I felt it from the very beginning,” says Gerwig of the hard-to-put-your-finger-on-it magic that surrounds this film. “You start getting the feeling that the movie wants to exist. That sounds a little goofy, but that’s what it feels like.”

Entertainment Weekly sat down with Gerwig, Ronan, and Metcalf, where it quickly became clear the warm feelings that are so apparent in front of the camera, exist behind the scenes, too. “Don’t take this the wrong way,” Ronan says, turning to Gerwig. “But I don’t see you, like, as a female director. I just think of you as a great director. A great filmmaker. I think the reason why the set was run so well is that Greta’s a great leader.” Echoes Metcalf, “We trusted Greta so much. We knew [Gerwig] was looking for the heart of it, and that you’ve always got your eye on the big picture.”
