Storyline Heading
BROOKLYN tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey, a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. 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 new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama Romantic - This is a period romantic drama aimed primarily at older adults, but it will also find fans with young adults, especially women, with its main character and love story. This is a starring showcase for Saoirse Ronan, with some other familiar faces such as Jim Broadbent having only background roles. Alcohol, sensuality, some language, and mature subject matter make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent The persistent feeling that this movie so beautifully creates is that even when the world is bestowing blessings upon us, it's still at the bottom a sad place, and the key to an emotionally healthy existence involves some rooted acceptance of that. ... it is big-hearted, romantic and beautiful.

NY Post Full Review
Good It's the sweet sincerity of "Brooklyn” that stamps it as both refreshing and nostalgic. Rarely does a film look at the past with such a warm glow of compassion, such decency, such respect.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good There will be bigger, wilder, weightier movies this year, but none lovelier than Brooklyn. I relished every moonstruck minute of it. Brooklyn is easily the year's best and most beguiling love story.

Rex Reed Full Review
Excellent A sensitive, dewy-eyed yet mature performance by Saoirse Ronan is the appealing centerpiece of Brooklyn, a beautifully calibrated film... ...a wise and thoughtful film about coming of age...
