An Irish immigrant (Saoirse Ronan) in 1950s New York falls for a tough Italian plumber (Emory Cohen), but faces temptation from another man (Domhnall Gleeson) when she returns to her homeland for a visit.
Initial release: November 4, 2015 (USA)
Director: John Crowley
Screenplay: Nick Hornby
Story by: Nick Hornby, Colm Tóibín
Brooklyn unfolds almost like a prim Victorian novel, presenting a young Irish woman, nobly brought to life by Saoirse Ronan, torn between two lovers.
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.
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.

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