Brooklyn, the John Crowley-directed adaptation of the Colm Tóibín bestseller which stars Saoirse Ronan and Domhnall Gleeson, is to be released in the US in November following Fox Searchlight's $9m distribution deal.

Deadline.com reports that the film will receive a limited release on November 6 in the build-up to this year's awards season.  

Brooklyn tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Ronan), who leaves 1950s Ireland for New York. There, she falls in love but later has to choose between her life in the US and her life back home.

The screenplay was written by Nick Hornby, with filming taking place in Wexford, Dublin and Wicklow.

The cast also includes Emory Cohen, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent. 

An Irish release date has yet to be announced.
