Being talked about in both 'Best Picture' & 'Best Actress' context, gone down very well at the festivals. Looks beautiful.

Genuinely one of the most moving films I've seen this year. It's quite simple but Sursha is brilliant in it. It's marketed as a love story but it's so much more than that.

It's definitely a contender for me! Fantastic, Julie Walters and the dinner table scenes were wonderful. It was funny, charming, touching. I was already a fan of Domhnall Gleeson but we saw less of him and he came second so I was definitely rooting for Tony (despite having to leave her mother and her sister being dead it still felt like an happy ending and it was so perfect).

Her talk about homesickness and the struggle between America and Ireland, I managed to find very relatable with my own circumstances.

Would love it to ride a probable Best Picture nomination all the way to a win. I could gush all day, it really had it all.

I will be so, so disappointed if Saoirse Ronan doesn't at least get a nomination for this, it's such a beautiful, rich and understated performance. <3

What a performance from Saiorse Ronan, each facial expression and word was thought about, it wasn't a larger than life character or an over the top performance but yet it left such a lasting impression. Glad she made the right decision in the end, was gettin worried with all the pressure put on her.

"Brooklyn" is a romantic drama that was released in my country's cinemas in January. It is based on the homonymous novel of the Irishman Colm Tóibín, which became a bestseller in 2009! "Brooklyn" made its official premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, which received excellent reviews and it was nominated for three Oscar Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay! The protagonist of the film is my favorite Saoirse Ronan, who is accompanied by acclaimed actors in key roles like Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent etc. I had previously not seen the official trailer and I deliberately did not read the plot. It is a standard practice that I follow in most films in recent years because I prefer not being influenced by opinions of people who I do not know. However, I do not know which is their “real” role as critics too. Some of them seem like good managers for some awful movies like “Goodbye to Language” and “A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence.”
"Brooklyn" takes place in the homonymous geographical region of New York, in 1952. The central character of the story is a young Irish girl -with wonderful eyes- Eilis Lacey, who leaves her birthplace and she arrives in Brooklyn to make a new beginning. Although the first few months will be quite difficult for her because she miss her family, her friends and her home, over time she will be adjusted and will make new friends and partner experiences. However, a sad event will force her to return at her homeland and she will face various dilemmas about her future. Brooklyn or Enniscorthy Ireland? Family or marriage? Italian breadwinner or rich -weenie- Irishman? All the questions will be answered till the ending. Don't worry smile.gif "Brooklyn" is a quite remarkable film which is based on the timeless theme of migration. Director of the film is the Irishman John Crowley and the script was written by British author Nick Hornby. "Brooklyn" had good directing, well-written dialogues, beautiful photography and excellent costumes! However, the biggest advantage of the movie was the participation of the talented and gifted Saoirse, who totally shines in this role. She interprets the heroine of the novel with brio and professionalism and it was appreaciated by all the major film organizations such as Golden Globes, Bafta, Oscar etc. Moreover, very good performances were given by the other actors/actresses. They also had a great presence in the film. The only negative aspect I found about this movie was that at some moments, it reminded me of TV films and perhaps this happened because its low budget. However, in general, the overall result was quite attentive.
"Brooklyn" is a very good movie which is seen pleasantly throughout its whole duration. Although it had sufficient revenues worldwide, it didn't have the appropriate response in my country because the average Greek viewer was only for “Worlds Apart” or “Star Wars:The Force Awakens” during that period. Nevertheless, it has acquired a high average score of 7,5 in IMDb and received very good reviews from the experts of the film industry. "Brooklyn" is a story that will give you enough smiles and emotions in appropriate doses.
