FeistyUpper If you don't like this, we can't be friends.
AnhartLinkin This story has more twists and turns than a second-rate soap opera.
Keeley Coleman The thing I enjoyed most about the film is the fact that it doesn't shy away from being a super-sized-cliche;
Deanna There are moments in this movie where the great movie it could've been peek out... They're fleeting, here, but they're worth savoring, and they happen often enough to make it worth your while.
bward-20 This is a simple story but an amazing film. Saoirse Ronan is magnificent and will be a huge star for years to come. Very enjoyable movie
silvana-334-592632 I keep watching it over and over again. I find the characters so intriguing and yet so secretive that I need to keep watching it to try and learn more about them. I find the character of Tony, played by Emory Cohen, just perfectly acted.
cinemajesty Film Review: "Brooklyn" (2015)The picture directed by John Crowley, who made waves early on with an independent production called "Intermission" (2003), also a recommendable watch, gains full directorial strength under leading actress Saoirse Ronan, who plays the U.S. immigrant Eilis from Irland crossing the Atlantic with a lonely suitcase in her hand, making the audience feel what it means to break with the past and encounter a new life in a new world."Brooklyn" establishes classic story-telling from the first minute. The film carried by Saoirse Ronan in a sole act to meet expectation in young actress' career, starting to take shape in 2007 with a decisive role at the age of just 12 in the film "Atonement" directed Joe Wright. Here the actress comes full circle with her evolution as an actress, presenting the journey of the character of Eilis as constant process of learning with the relentless wish to make a living in the new world on the East Coast of the United States of America in the 1950s.The screenplay written by novel author Nick Hornby makes all the right turns to be compelling throughout. The character of Eilis encounters a variety of women at a boarding house at the title-given location, watching them closely to become the woman of taste and knowledge in order to meet a partner for life. 45-year-old director John Crowly captures the very essence of immigration or moving itself by granting the audience Saoirse Ronan's full range of method acting plus an authentic accent.© 2017 Felix Alexander Dausend (Cinemajesty Entertainments LLC)
Kingslaay Brooklyn for the most part was a well directed film that showcased excellent acting and a great story. We see an Irish girl travel to America and then build a lifestyle that is hard to leave behind such as her marriage, job and new friends. In Ireland she has her mother, a job she can easily jump into and a well to do suitor. The film takes a unique look at the tug of war one can face with two lifestyles in different countries. It was a great story that looked at a certain period in history that involved large scale immigration. However the story's end was a let down. We see the main character almost going back to Ireland when an incident of potential blackmail makes her now want to go back home. The logic and emotion behind this was unexplained and could leave viewers scratching their heads. Why did she decide to return to America? What was the audience supposed to see and understand here? The story felt built up with her dilemma only to be offered a weird explanation in the end, its like the director didn't know how to end the film.
