Brooklyn (12A)

2015 (Ireland | UK | Canada) (Drama, Romance)
STARRING: Saoirse Ronan, Emory Cohen, Jim Broadbent
DIRECTOR: John Crowley

A young Irish woman named Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) departs her homeland for a new life in 1950s New York City. She’s been sponsored for a job selling perfume to ladies of leisure at a department store. She struggles with homesickness and the unease that comes with being out of her depth. Then, through a budding romance with an Italian plumber (Emory Cohen), she begins to feel like New York is not only her home, but where she is meant to be.

Brooklyn is a film that gets its themes of isolation, melancholy, and ultimately happiness so spot-on that it will speak to anybody who has packed their life into a suitcase and moved far away, as well as anybody who’s ever yearned and dreamed of something bigger and hoped for something better. It features outstanding performances from Saoirse Ronan and Emory Cohen in a rich period drama that tugs at the heartstrings as deftly as it satisfies the mind.
