Critic reviews:
Brooklyn unfolds almost like a prim Victorian novel, presenting a young Irish woman, nobly brought to life by Saoirse Ronan, torn between two lovers.
Peter Debruge·Variety

The film Brooklyn is a study in homesickness, which in this case means you ache for a place that, once upon a time, you were aching to leave.
David Edelstein·Vulture

Nick Hornby’s screenplay is poised and acute, but, in adapting Colm Tóibín’s novel, he is stuck with a dangerously undramatic tale, and Crowley’s direction is sedate to a fault.
Anthony Lane·The New Yorker

This is an old-fashioned entertainment, but one so masterfully crafted and heartfelt that it’s hard not to love.
Noel Murray·A.V. Club
