Saoirse Ronan’s Defining Moment

“When we shot the scene on the deck of a boat, near the end of the film, [my character] Eilis has gone full circle; she has experienced homesickness, grief, love, success, heartbreak, and has come out the other side,” Ronan says of the mid-century story of an Irish immigrant in New York. “This film helped me to overcome so much; it helped me grow. To read the most beautiful dialogue, written by Nick Hornby, I felt in that moment, regardless of what happened with the film after we wrapped, that it was all worthwhile and it meant something to everyone there that day.”

Ronan wears a suit and shirt by ME+EM and shoes by Jimmy Choo.
