Ronan, 19, was costumed for the period drama in a long navy skirt and a short cream-colored cardigan over a white button-up. As the series is set in the 50s, Ronan’s hair was styled for the decade in vintage curls, and she wore a soft red lipstick.

Directed by John Crowley, Brooklyn is based off the New York Times best-seller by Colm Toibin. It’s been adapted for the big screen by Nick Hornby. Starring alongside Ronan will be Domhnall Gleeson, Jim Broadbent, Julie Waters and Emory Cohen.

In Brooklyn, Ronan plays Ellis Lacy, an Irish Immigrant who wants to build a life for herself in post-war era New York City. Unlike the small town in Ireland she hails from, Brooklyn provides Ellis with job options and true love with an Italian American named Tony (Cohen).

Ellis is ultimately drawn back to her homeland following a family tragedy. While back in Ireland, she becomes involved with Gleeson’s character, Jim. In the end, Ellis must chose between Ireland and America and the two men she’s fallen for in the distant countries.

Brooklyn is slated for a 2015 release.
