Tragedy tomorrow, Comedy Tonight! A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum takes comedy back to its roots by combining situations from time-tested, 2000 year-old comedies by the Roman playwright Plautus, with the infectious energy of the golden age of musicals. The result is a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave, Pseudolus, schemes to win his freedom by helping his young master win the beautiful courtesan who is betrothed to the mighty soldier Miles Gloriosus.

Eilis is a young Irish Catholic girl who leaves her elderly mother and sister Rose to seek a better life in America. She meets Tony, a good-natured Italian boy who adores her. Their relationship is put on hold, however, when unforeseen circumstances force Eilis to return to Ireland, where she soon finds that almost everyone in her old community is eager to find a reason to keep her there. Brooklyn is romantic, old-fashioned and nostalgic, but those comforting qualities never come in conflict with the film's honesty.2015 British Independent Film Awards, winner: Best Actress; 2015 San Francisco Film Critics Circle, winner: Best Actress and Best Screenplay. English language.
