Here is a new interview of Saoirse at the Toronto Film Festival and she talks about ‘Brooklyn’, feminism and working in New York.

Ronan is renewing her Oscar buzz with Brooklyn, a story about an Irish immigrant in 1950s New York City written by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity,About a Boy).

While at the Toronto International Film Festival for Brooklyn’s premiere, ETonline sat down with the young star to discuss dating, feminism, and what happened while filming in the same town where two escaped killers were found.

ETonline: How are you? All talked out yet?

Saoirse Ronan: You know I’m doing OK. I do always get sick every time before I do a press junket though. It’s like I’m allergic to press or something.

Oh, thanks.

Yea, I’m allergic to you. Stay away from me!

Such a sweet part of Brooklyn was how Tony (Emory Cohen) courts your character, Eilis. Watching it, I thought, that’s just not ever going to happen to me–or my girlfriends–today. Read More

Indiewire spoke with Saoirse during the Toronto Film Festival about ‘Brooklyn’ and why it hits so close to home. The interview contains spoilers.

Although the film is billed as a romance — and it very much is — there are all these wonderful female relationships within it, too, from Eilis’ mother and sister to the girls in the boardinghouse. Was that something that was attractive for you?

Absolutely, I’m glad you mentioned it, because no one else has been asking me about it. I’ve been trying to get it in. It’s great, we need to see more films where there is female interaction and it’s classed as entertainment and it doesn’t have to resort to something sexual or a competition or whatever. I think one of the things that a lot of journalists and critics and people have seemed to pick up on is there is no cattiness. The girls are snappy in the boardinghouse, but you’re all kind of in it together, and we all have dinner together.

Really, for me, what I’ve experienced over the last couple of years is that the women in my life have been the ones who are helping me become the woman I will be one day, the kind of wisdom that they’ve passed on to me. Just little things, just small little things — my auntie Margaret, my mom, my auntie who is like ninety years old  — all these incredible women in my life, they’re the ones who have been through the same things as me, fundamentally, and help me in what I’m doing. I think that’s a huge part, I think that’s the real heart of this actually, Eilis’ relationship with all these different women in her life, they’re really the ones that carry the story through.

By the time she gets to the end of the film, and she meets this young girl, she’s come full circle. She’s taken on the part that Eva [Birthistle] plays at the start. I think that’s so beautiful, and that’s so true. It happens in life, so often you don’t realize how you came full circle. You’re able to look back at things in retrospect and go, “Huh,  I got through, and I’m able to pass this on to somebody else.” Read More
