Brooklyn

Even though the issues interfered here is light as a chip, the suave tone of it which was set from the first frame gives it enough gravitas to meddle the emotions and feelings of the audience. Brooklyn is a light drama feature that raises some genuine family and society issues in a mild and amusing tone with enough material to feed the audience. John Crowley gets it right this time and his execution is plausible here along with Nick's tight adaptation from the novel and perfectly edited feature with reasonable runtime. And in the end, it is a captain's cruise and Saoirse Ronan sails it through each and every phase offering comfortable ride to the viewers with a great supporting cast like Domhnall. Brooklyn's short runtime, fast paced screenplay, majestic performance and a perfect execution favors in all accounting it into far better than one could have expected.

Brooklyn Surprises All The Way

Brooklyn is one of those movies you think might possibly be passed over in this era of CGI action fodder. Only to find it has become a record breaker of its genre. Perhaps screenplay writer, Nick Hornby and director, John Crowley may never top the level of perfection they have achieved with this mature production. Neither of these men lived through the 50's - yet have avoided falling into the trap of adding too many 'modern' touches - creating a near perfect representation of the life and times of that era. Art direction and cinematography add further important creative technical touches. Young Saoirse Ronan does wonders with her important role as Eilis, an Irish girl facing the challenging step of leaving home and country - to start a new life in a strange land.

With a flawless cast this often sad tale is brought to the screen with all the nuances of real-life sparklingly intact. Good to see the always reliable Jim Broadbent being used to good advantage. Congratulations are certainly due to all involved with transferring Colm Toibin's descriptive novel to the cinema (and maybe even adding helpful touches along the way). A rich addition to the overall impact comes from Canadian composer Michael Brook's truly beautiful score.

Strong recommendation for lovers of quality motion pictures examining the morals, difficulties, and times, of those who went before us.

Brooklyn

Wrapping up my season of Oscar Best Pic nominees (the first time I've done that before February...ever), I finally saw a movie I've wanted to see since I saw the first trailer 4-5 months ago. Though I didn't quite make out what the plot was from trailer, the story was not what I expected and, even in my increased level of expectations after seeing the 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes, I left thinking it was even better than I thought it would be. This period piece set in 1950's Brooklyn is precious from the opening scene. The performances are authentic, especially by Saoirse Ronan, the stunning lead actress, who is also nominated for an Oscar. The story is consistent, well-written and directed to keep the attention of the audience every minute of the film. They don't make films like this very often, so it's a treat when they are made and they are this good. While it doesn't beat out "The Big Short" for me in the Best Picture category, it's very close to it and "Spotlight." Definitely worthy of the nod, your money and your time.
