Young Irish immigrant Eilis Lace (Saoirse Ronan) navigates her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother's home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her past disrupts her new vivacity, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within. Rated: PG-13 Running time: 1 hour and 57 minutes
With bodacious vocals and smokin’ instrumentals beating with the heart of Vermont’s Green Mountains, this hot band and its amazing singer songwriter brings tunes you know (and some new ones, too) to the Main Stage. With a little more blue in the bluegrass, a little more swing, and a whole lot of fun, Patti Casey and the Wicked Fine Players features Colin McCaffrey’s beautiful fiddle and killer vocal harmonies, Kirk Lord’s spot-on, low-key, rock-solid acoustic bass, Steve Light’s award-winning banjo and dobro, and of course, Patti’s voice and songs, which have not only won many national awards, but many hearts as well. “Some of the finest vocals and creative songwriting you’re liable to hear anywhere… a voice like expensive chocolate.” — Seven Days
