Sometimes, in very rare occasions, a movie will make you cry not from it being sad, but because it was absolutely beautiful.
Brooklyn had a story that everyone will relate to. Saoirse Ronan was astonishing. There something very special about both her look and charisma that makes her acting feel so raw and natural.
I thought Emory Cohen did a really good job. I had only seen him in the OA and was impressed with his ability to act. However, I strongly believe that Saoirse grabbed all the attention.
When there was 10 minutes to spare, I wanted to see Tony go to Ireland and be with Eilis there. In this two hour journey, the viewers are living in two places(Irelands, and Brooklyn). Therefore, I wanted to these two places to be united so I can feel the closure of Love, Family, and Friendship all combine into a finally. However, the ending of this movie caught me by surprise and was the most beautiful ending I had seen in a while. Eilis is on the boat going back to brooklyn, when she sees a girl struggling to go to New York. It is at that moment, when you truly see that insane character development of Eilis. You also feel so proud of her, and a sense of nostalgia.
A MUST see.
Story wise and execution: 3.5/3.5
Camera Work: 1.6/2
Overall Score: 4.78/5
Even though the issues interfered here is light as a chip, the suave tone of it which was set from the first frame gives it enough gravitas to meddle the emotions and feelings of the audience. Brooklyn is a light drama feature that raises some genuine family and society issues in a mild and amusing tone with enough material to feed the audience. John Crowley gets it right this time and his execution is plausible here along with Nick's tight adaptation from the novel and perfectly edited feature with reasonable runtime. And in the end, it is a captain's cruise and Saoirse Ronan sails it through each and every phase offering comfortable ride to the viewers with a great supporting cast like Domhnall. Brooklyn's short runtime, fast paced screenplay, majestic performance and a perfect execution favors in all accounting it into far better than one could have expected.
Should be retitled to 'A Young Woman Comes to America and Makes Every Morally Wrong Choice Possible.'
Buena historia, buen guión, disfrutable a un punto aceptable; indiscutiblemente Brooklyn no es una mala película, pero tampoco es una genial película que justifique su valoración.
