Saoirse confirmed to attend TIFF 2017

Saoirse’s presence at Toronto International Film Festival has been confirmed! She’ll be attending the premieres of Lady Bird and On Chesil Beach, both during the event’s opening weekend. The festival’s full lineup has been revealed, including more information about both movies, such as new summaries and running times.

Lady Bird

USA / 94 minutes / 2017 / STC / Colour / English / International Premiere

A rebellious young woman (Saoirse Ronan) navigates the pressures and constraints of Catholic school and life in Sacremento, in Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut.

Christine McPherson (Saoirse Ronan, also appearing at this year’s Festival in On Chesil Beach) — affectionately known and self-proclaimed as Lady Bird — is an ambitious, bright, and precocious high school senior. Longing to break free of suburban Sacramento, she dreams of a different life full of east coast skyscrapers, Ivy League universities, and cosmopolitan culture.

With modest grades and no alumni connections to speak of, Lady Bird needs extracurriculars to beef up her college applications. Joining the drama club leads to new friends (sometimes at the expense of old ones), first loves, and a social life in full swing. Dealing with her critical mother and succeeding at math do not come as easily. With her dad recently laid off, her mom working double shifts as a nurse, and her brother and his girlfriend — Berkeley grads — working at the supermarket, she is keenly aware that post–high school life is no walk in the park. Old enough to appreciate what she has, but not always mature enough to show it, sometimes she just wants to go shopping for her prom dress rather than putting her clothes away.

Saoirse’s Interview for ANDPOP

Saoirse talked to ANDPOP while promoting ‘Brooklyn’ at Toronto International Film Festival, and her interview has just been published. She jokes about being allergic to the promotional process of filmmaking, taught them how to properly pronounce her name, and, of course, talked about her film. Read it below.

Now in Toronto for TIFF to promote the Nick Hornby penned film (which we loved), Ronan let ANDPOP in on a few things about her — including how to properly say her beautiful name and how personal of a story Brooklyn is for her — during a roundtable interview.

5. She’s Allergic To Press (No, Really!)
When she walked into, Ronan came bearing a tea and an orange juice. “I’m here with Mr. Tea and Mr. Orange Juice, my entourage,” she said. “I always get sick doing press. My publicist makes fun of me and says I’m allergic to press.” I didn’t make her sick, thankfully.

4. This Is How You Pronounce Her Name
Although she’s probably been asked this question 1,000 times, we just had to get to the bottom of how to properly say her first name. “I pronounce it Sersha, spelled Ser-Sha” she cooed in that incredible Irish accent. Got it? Now don’t forget it!
