Brooklyn

The narrative is slight, but the two central performances are beautifully detailed portraits of young love. Brooklyn is charming, if overly sentimental, eschewing the more dramatically potent stuff in favor of a fluffy romance. There’s nothing wrong with that, in fact, it’s very sweet and entertaining, but lurking around the corners of the frame is a better film wanting to break free.   The... read more

Good story, of dilemma between love with a handsome poor italian Brooklyn and the stiff bachelor in the province. Ronan is good actress, she gains confidence as her character; but I think is too selfconscious when she couldn't be so.

A good movie

Since this movie was very well received when it was released,  I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it turned out to be not bad at all, I can't say it really blew me away though. I don't know, maybe it was because the main character didn't have to struggle so much after all. I mean, beside the fact that she got seriously home-sick (which I could really identify with from my own ex... read more

Set on opposite sides of the Atlantic, John Crowley’s Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey, 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.

A good movie

“Since this movie was very well received when it was released,  I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it turned out to be not bad at all, I can't say it really blew me away though. I don't know, maybe it was because the main character didn't have to struggle so much after all. I mean, beside the fact that she got seriously home-sick (which I could really identify with from my own experience), in fact, she was provided with a place to stay, a job, some schooling and she even managed to find a really nice guy without too much effort. Furthemore, the 3rd act turned out to be almost impossible to swallow. Sure, under such circumstances, it was understandable that she would go back to Ireland but why on Earth would she even consider to stay there? Seriously, at this point, it bec” read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- March 2016 (31 movies items)

" M-GO- 1hr. 51min. First Viewing I don't really know what it is, but Brooklyn left my somewhat cold. It all looks gorgeous, with lovely production and costume designs, as well as warm cinematography. It also features an effective performance from Saoirse Ronan, who keeps you completely invested in her character's journey. The story is just so predictable though; it goes along at slow pace that never really changes anything up. It's a fine movie, but I was just wanting some more vibrancy and life"

2015 Films - Best to Worst (70 movies items)

" This is a film that is suited for the Oscars and awards session. Nowadays people talk about films like that like it's a bad thing. That's not always the truth, and in Brooklyn's case, it's certainly not. This is a lovely, lovely film. A light, inoffensive film that nicely checks off every requirement for a film like this, and handles it all skillfully. Saoirse Ronan is completely mesmerizing and you're emotionally invested in her whole journey. She's also extremely pretty. Her character is we"
