'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.
