Cinema Clips: Brooklyn

Posted By on Tue, Dec 15, 2015 at 9:00 AM


1950’s Brooklyn is sumptuously captured in John Crowley's wonderful story of an Irish immigrant trying to choose between two lands. Saoirse Ronan is pure delight as Eilis, who gets a job in New York and quickly falls in love with blue-collar worker Tony (Emory Cohen), a charming Yankees fan with eyes set on marriage.

When family tragedy calls Eilis back to Ireland for a spell, she’s forced to decide between Tony and Jim (the ever-so-busy Domhnall Gleeson), a hometown boy who is also trying to win her over. The film does a splendid job depicting and immigrant’s life, from the woozy boat trip over, to the derogatory remarks in diners.

Ronan finally gets the role she deserves, and will certainly be a frontrunner for an Oscar. Crowley has not only put together one of 2015’s best acted films, but one of it’s best looking ones, and the score is a true winner.

This is a great movie for anybody looking to experience a little bit of New York history in a truly romantic way.
