Beautiful retro posters capture Brooklyn’s old-school charm

We’re not ones for sharing posters that much on VODzilla.co, but in the case of Brooklyn, we simply had to make an exception.
We described John Cowley’s Oscar-nominated drama as a “gloriously old-fashioned tale of identity, belonging and starting over” and someone out there in movie land apparently agrees, as the new wave of posters to celebrate the film’s arrival on DVD and VOD this week take us all the way back to the olden days of Hollywood marketing.
The posters show Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), the young Irish immigrant who moves to New York in the 1950s, where she falls into a romance with strapping local Italian boy Anthony Fiorello (Emory Cohen). Soon, though, Lacey finds herself pining for her home country – and another male suitor (Jim Farrell – Domhnall Gleeson) who proves just as charismatic.
How does one choose where one’s home is? It’s the kind of question you’d expect to be asked by a Hollywood starlet 60 years ago and as these new posters prove, Brooklyn more than fits the traditional bill.
