Pick your movie of the week: Saoirse Ronan! (Jan 21-27/18)

You may be unfamiliar with her, so let me help out firstly with her name. It’s pronounced “SIR-shuh ROH-nin.” I remember back in 2008 when she got nominated for an Oscar for her performance in Atonement (2007). Since then she’s been consistently in the movie awards limelight, and deservedly too.

This year she’s received her third Oscar nomination for her starring role in Ladybird (2017). Which one of her prior movies would you choose to be this week’s movie?

The Lovely Bones (2009)
♦ Centers on a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family—and her killer—from purgatory. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal. ♦

Hanna (2011)
♦ A sixteen-year-old girl who was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin is dispatched on a mission across Europe, tracked by a ruthless intelligence agent and her operatives. ♦

Brooklyn (2015)
♦ An Irish immigrant lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a romance with a local. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. ♦

  1. Brooklyn…I love that movie.
    Troy, I would recommend reading Lovely Bones before watching the movie…it’s a short book..you should be able to read it before the week is out !
