Brooklyn

Critics Consensus

Brooklyn buttresses outstanding performances from Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen with a rich period drama that tugs at the heartstrings as deftly as it satisfies the mind.

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 past disrupts her new vivacity, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

    Very nicely acted and filmed movie. I appreciated, but didn't necessarily like it. The main problem I had was that I wasn't overly keen on Eilis. There were parts to her I found cruel (such as her behaviour to the young blonde girl and the not even opening Tony's letters). This isn't the fault of the film - but it is marketed as a romantic love story with a triangle. It's actually not that romantic. I feel like Eillis was railroaded into the relationship with Tony and just drifts into another with Jim. There's no chemistry or real emotion portrayed with either. She is dishonest and seems to just let life happen to her. Even her choice at the end is circumstance more than truly her own. It did feel very real to the time period though and Soirse does a great job portraying Eillis. I can appreciate women had less options in that era and it was a different time and so would be interested to read the book and see if the character is more likeable there!

    This is a sweet film about an Irish immigrant woman trying to find herself in America. I knew very little about the movie and was surprised by the plot change in the middle of the film. I won't ruin it for you, I'll only say that if you like love stories, give this movie a try. I did and I dug it.

    The most beautiful romantic-drama I've watched in a while. Brooklyn gains from an overwhelmingly honest, Oscar-nominated, performance from Saoirse Ronan.

    Delightful, but not exceptional. Kinda like the real Brooklyn.
