Ronan beautifully captures everything Eilis is feeling and thinking and truly brings the audience into Eilis' struggle and confusion. Brooklyn is well deserving of the Oscar nomination for Best Picture and Ronan for Best Actress.

"Brooklyn" is a forthright, approachable, and esteemed historical drama where the dignity and honesty soar to heavenly heights to shine on the plights of love and independence.

Overall, however, Brooklyn is a pleasant film, but not an especially compelling one.

A movie about decisions that makes all the right decisions.

While there are no explosions and no real antagonist, it's one of those movies that goes straight to the heart of what it means to be human.

To match the tonal invariability is the perfectly cast Ronan, who is naturally pleasant, seemingly without trying.

Screenwriter Nick Hornby (An Education) and director John Crowley (Closed Circuit) also do a terrific job of building the dramatic tension between Eilis's old and new lives.

Brooklyn transcend[s] the banality of a happy ending for something murkier and more beautiful.

Saoirse Ronan's stellar acting will transport you to the 50's and will make you fall in love with this beautiful love story. [Full review in Spanish]

A low-key tribute to the better angels of American nature.

Phenomenal performances from Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen help to elevate 1950s romantic drama Brooklyn in the 2015 adaptation.

Brooklyn is sublime viewing; beautiful to look at and lovely to watch, with [Saoirse] Ronan presenting her most mature role to date.

Full disclosure: I did not expect to cry so much during Brooklyn - the journey of one woman learning to navigate her place in the world.

Brooklyn is a beautiful film, in both presentation, with its lush cinematography, and delicate execution.

It is a very sweet, lovely movie that I highly recommend.

Brooklyn actually harks back to the kind of escapist entertainment cinema offered in the 1950s. It's all rather lovely, if completely unchallenging.

I was surprised at how enjoyable and skillfully made Brooklyn is: I cried when everyone else did and gasped when the rest of the audience did too, but in spite of its excellent art direction and affecting performances the film is mostly hokum.

It's a lovely piece of cinema, and one of the best movies of 2015 to date.

The look of 1950s Brooklyn and Ireland is beautiful-each glimpse more idyllic than the next to render the film a fairy tale of sorts...

There are no real words to describe how moving and emotionally satisfying this story is.
