A New Film Classic

A film of quiet beauty, Brooklyn takes us back to Ireland and Brooklyn in the 1950s. It’s a sentimental journey about romance, homesickness, friends, family and decisions. This remarkable movie, masterfully directed by John Crowley from Nick Hornby’s sensitive adaptation of a novel by Colm Toibin, touched me deeply. But I’m not the only one. Who hasn’t felt the despair of moving away from loved ones or from a town you grew up in? Or the frustration of trying to decide which place is your real home? Brooklyn highlights these universal situations in a way that almost makes us feel we’re experiencing everything right along with Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), the movie’s main character. But guess what I enjoyed the most about this wonderful film? It reminds me of classic movie gems from the past -- you know, the ones that emphasized character development and good storytelling. Don't miss this one, folks!
