Saoirse Úna Ronan (/ˈsɜrʃə ˈuːnə ˈroʊnən/ SUR-shə; born 12 April 1994) is an Irish-American actress. She came to international prominence in 2007 after co-starring as Briony Tallis in the film Atonement, for which she received nominations for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her one of the youngest actresses to receive an Oscar nomination.

Her film breakthrough was followed by her starring role in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones (2009) for which she was awarded a Critics' Choice Award, a Saturn Award, and a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Other notable films include the romantic comedy I Could Never Be Your Woman (2007), the supernatural film Death Defying Acts (2008), the science fiction-fantasy City of Ember (2008), the epic true story The Way Back (2010), the action thriller Hanna (2011), the romantic-science fiction The Host (2013), How I Live Now (2013), Wes Anderson's comedy The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) and John Crowley's romantic drama Brooklyn (2015). In February 2016, Ronan is set to make her Broadway debut in a revival of The Crucible, playing the role of Abigail Williams.

Biography

On her name, she said, "'Searsha' is how Irish people pronounce it, but I would pronounce it 'Sersha,' like 'inertia' […] It's Irish for 'freedom.'" In 2012, Ronan briefly dated actor George MacKay. They met whilst filming their movie How I Live Now, according to its director."

In May 2015, Ronan backed the Yes side in the Marriage Equality Referendum regarding an amendment to the constitution of Ireland to mandate provision for same-sex marriage. Speaking at a "Get out the vote" event organised by Yes Equality, Ronan said "It’s like when black and white people couldn’t marry, Protestants and Catholics couldn’t marry for a long time, and you think of it as being so ridiculous now... these are all things that we consider to be so backwards and dated, and it will be viewed as that if we get a No vote."

En 1891, à Arles, le facteur Joseph Roulin demande à son fils Armand de remettre une lettre à Théodorus van Gogh, le frère du peintre Vincent van Gogh qui s'est donné la mort. Armand est très récalcitrant : même si Van Gogh avait peint son portrait quelque temps plus tôt, Armand reste persuadé, comme la plupart des gens, que Vincent Van Gogh était un fou plus ou moins dangereux. Armand accepte à contrecœur pour faire plaisir à son père. Mais il apprend que le frère de l'artiste est mort quelques mois plus tard. La mission d'Armand semble ne plus avoir de sens, mais, dans l'intervalle, les premiers éléments qu'il a appris sur la mort du peintre lui ont donné envie d'en savoir plus. Dès lors, Armand se rend à Auvers-sur-Oise pour enquêter sur la vie intime et artistique de Vincent van Gogh.

Daisy, a neurotic and anorexic American teenager, is sent to the English countryside for the summer to stay with her Aunt Penn and her cousins, Eddie, Isaac, and Piper. She arrives at Heathrow Airport to tightened security and reports of a bombing in Paris, and Isaac drives to her cousins' farm, which she discovers to be dilapidated and very messy. Although initially abrasive, Daisy warms to them upon learning that her deceased mother used to stay there frequently. She also falls in love with Eddie, her eldest cousin, finding him to be as introverted and strong-willed as she, and noticing his unusual, almost mystical connection to animals. A few days after her arrival, her aunt flies to Geneva to attend an emergency conference because she is an expert in terrorist extremist groups, and the group take advantage of her absence to explore their local woodlands.
