It was just announced Saoirse Ronan will be in your solo directorial debut, Lady Bird. That’s big news.
I know. I know.
How does that happen? Did you make contact with her at all?
Well, kind of. It was a very fortuitous turn of events. She ended up reading the script and really connected to it. Then I met her and we read it together and she’s so instantly great. It was written in the stars a bit and I’m very lucky it happened the way it did. But, yeah, it was fortuitous.
It was already getting a lot of attention because it’s your first movie directing by yourself, and now with her…
I know. She’s the best. In a way, I’m so happy that all of this has happened for her. But it’s not the basis of my interest. She was great no matter what. But, I’m so glad, it’s so great to reward the good guys.
But now you don’t have to tell people, “Oh, you’re going to love her.” People already know.
Yes, that’s true. And she’s just a tremendous talent and what a face. I couldn’t be more honored that she’s going to be in the film.
After this, you’re gearing up to direct again with “Lady Bird.” It was just announced yesterday that you’ve cast Saoirse Ronan as your leading lady.
She’s my girl. She’s my girl. I’m very, very blessed. She is a talent for the ages. She is so young and she is so great. Every time I wake up and I remember that she’s going to be in it, it’s like remembering, I don’t know, it’s like “the dream was real! It’s happening!” I’m really excited.
I’ve spent a long time writing this script and it feels like something I’ve been working towards for — it’s 2016, I graduated from college in 2006, I’ve been working as a co-writer, a writer, co-director, producer, actor — and it feels like I’ve apprenticed for ten years and it feels time and I hope that I am equal to her talents.
She’s a chameleon, but she’s so subtle, it never feels like she’s bringing you this ready-made performance, she kind of subtly becomes this other person, and that’s the kind of acting I like. I’m so glad she’s been rewarded for it so richly.

In Brooklyn, Saoirse Ronan stars as a young Irish woman named Eilis Lacey adapting to her new life at a New York City boarding house and her new job at a department store. In this first clip, she realizes just how much she misses home when a letter arrives from her family in Ireland.
Directed by John Crowley and written by Nick Hornby,Brooklyn adapts the novel by Colm Tóibín, which follows Eilis as she navigates New York and falls in love with an Italian man before tragedy forces her to choose between her old life in Ireland and her new life in America.
Brooklyn debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and will hit theaters on Nov. 6.
Fox Searchlight has released the official poster for Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan (Lovely Bones) and here it is…
As you can see, Saoirse Ronan looks stunning as does the New York backdrop. The film is set for a November release.
BROOKLYN tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating 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 new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.
