Walking into last weekend's Oscars with nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress, and Best Adapted Screenplay, the lovely "Brooklyn" went home with nothing to put on the shelf. But it doesn't take away from the film's small, sweet power, and later this month, you'll be able to bring the movie home when it hits DVD and Blu-ray. But a couple teases from the extras have arrived early.
A pair of deleted scenes from the picture reveal a couple of small moments snipped from the movie: an extra scene of Saoirse Ronan's Eilis getting some assistance with a new bathing suit, and another with a clearly upset Mrs. Keough, played by Julie Walters. These the kinds of snips that probably wouldn't have added much to John Crowley's finished film, but it's fun to take a look, nonetheless.
"Brooklyn" hits home video on March 15th. Check out the clips, and don't forget, there's a TV series inspired by the movie brewing.
