So I've finally got to see Brooklyn this week and I thought it was good. While I didn't think it was "2015 best and most beguiling love story", or "The best movie of 2015", but it is a well made movie. Saoirse Ronan delivers a remarkable performance that really dose carry this movie. The sets, the costumes and the direction were all top notch and I have no complaint there. Unfortunately, I can't see myself watching Brooklyn again if I have to be honest. Some people may disagree with me and that's fine, because you can like whatever you want and I'm not telling you what you should like or feel about a movie. It's one of those "It's good, but never again will I be watching it again".

'Brooklyn' is a drama/romance/period-piece that feels accessible to a wide audience. Ronan is so sweet in the lead role. You really do feel for her right from the first scene. Her troubles and her accomplishments are relatable to the given circumstances of the story. There's no contrivances, coincidences, or forcible situations usually found in these types of films. Everything comes naturally through the characters in a truthful manner. The story stays focused on it's small endeavors and paints them with intimate strokes. While watching, It gives the feeling of a warm hug. This is the kind of movie that you could take your grandma to and both of you would enjoy it. I liked 'Brooklyn' much more than anticipated.

Eine romantische Vision

Ich habe Brooklyn von Colm Tóibín gelesen und es überwältigte mich! Fast als hätte ich vergessen, wieviel Kraft sprache haben kann, entkleidet man sie erst einmal von jedem Schmuck und jeder Zierde. Ich las, dass Nick Hornby aus dem Roman ein Drehbuch verfasst hatte und durfte sicher sein, dass es funktioniert. Es ist die Geschichte von Eilis Lacey, einer ungewöhnlich offenen und intelligenten Frau. Für sie gibt es keine Zukunft in ihrer kleinen irischen Heimatstadt während der 50er Jahre. Ein Priester verschafft Eilis nun die Möglichkeit, auszuwandern in die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika. In den Bezirk, der dem Roman seinen Titel verleiht. Wir erleben die anstrengende Überfahrt und Eilis Einsamkeit in der neuen Welt. Sie wird ihren eigenen Weg gehen, Liebe finden und schliesslich zurüc...

In short ... give that girl an Oscar !

"Would you like to dance?
Are you here with that guy? The one who was teaching you to dance?
No.
So would you dance with me?
I'm not sure he taught me anything.
Doesn't matter. The secret is to look as though you know what you're doing.
Ah. I wish someone had told me that years ago."

No, I'm not really a big fan of romantic movies. Such movies that'll make the female audience melt and whimper in a handkerchief out of sympathy with the main character. And no, I'm not an insensitive lump of testosterone who only likes to watch action packed, macho movies. But yeah, I usually eschew this type of movies. And yet I wanted to see this movie. Not because I made a mistake while buying paper tissues and now I'm buried under it. And not because I'm in an emotional slump and...
