We’re Heading To Brooklyn

This is a LOOK advertorial

If you’re looking for a striking New York backdrop, ’50s styling and total glamour, new blockbuster Brooklyn has it all.

It’s already  scored both BAFTA and Academy Awards® recognition – and now you can own it on DVD! 

Brooklyn tells the story of Eilis (played by the gorgeous Saoirse Ronan), who leaves Ireland to carve out a bright future in New York. But when she falls for Tony (Emory Cohen), Eilis has to make a heartbreaking choice between her new love and her old flame Jim (Domhnall Gleeson).

The sets and styling take the film to another level, with nearly every item Eilis wears being an original vintage piece sourced by Emmy award-winning designer Odile Dicks-Mireaux.

‘I didn’t want the costumes to distract from [the storytelling],’ she reveals. You can watch this beautiful, magical and heartwarming film with friends or family (hello, what a great Mother’s Day present!), because it really is perfect for everyone.

And if you’re looking for some Mother’s Day Ideas, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s our guide to planning the best one ever:

1) Sweet Treats

No mum should be without champers and a huge box of chocs on her big day. Splash out on this Hotel Chocolat Mother’s Day Sleekster box (£22).

2) Get Pampered

Surprise your mum by booking a beauty therapist to come to your home via Treatwell. Alternatively, add the personal touch by giving her a manicure yourself!

3) Cosy Up 

Give your mum a copy of Brooklyn (out now on DVD) and then cosy up on the sofa to watch it together. Talk about bonus mum brownie points. You can thank us later. 

Brooklyn is available to own on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download from 29 February, courtesy of Lionsgate Home Entertainment
