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.

An ode to homesickness and longing that also serves as an essential destination for theater-goers this Holiday season.

As Eilis Lacey, Saoirse Ronan carries this film so splendidly that in any year that was not so utterly Brie Larson's, it would be a crime not to give her every award; you can practically see her eyes changing colors with her moods.

a feast for the eyes

It's the ultimate love story, where a young woman finds that she must choose between two men and two very different lives. It's a film about identity and family obligation - and it's truly timeless.

A rare feel-good romantic drama that finds something fresh in the most familiar places.

[Director John] Crowley guides us through the narrative with precision but it's a performance-driven film and the ensemble cast, especially the chemistry between Ronan and Cohen, deserve any and all accolade.

[Brooklyn] goes back in time and deals with immigration in a very delicate manner, and without this subtlety detracting in any way from the importance of the film's subject.

Yes, we have seen this story countless times before, but the execution here is on-point and will warm your heart while simultaneously making you chuckle frequently

It's this fact that makes Brooklyn so relevant. As our country debates whether to allow refugees in, we need to reflect upon our own histories and recognize so many common dreams and goals. We're all Eilis.

Brooklyn undoubtedly has a sweetness and sincerity that will melt the heart for those with a fondness for this kind of thing, and the period production design, on both sides of the Atlantic, is lovely. But the best reason for seeing it is Ronan.
October 10, 2017
Emotionally rendered by an attractive cast and crafted in the best traditions of mainstream filmmaking ... Brooklyn is a captivating and rewarding moviegoing experience the kind that at best comes along once or twice a year.
September 28, 2017
Brooklyn arrives duly hyped, and disappoints just as reliably.
September 16, 2017
[Brooklyn] dares to dream an old dream, and we are reminded of the powerful allure of home.
