Low key but superior - Brooklyn review by AG

Spoiler Alert
02/02/2017

Excellent film. Fine acting all round. Deserved a better exposure - I ahd not heard of it and took a chance. Nice Nick Hornby screenplay. Not lavish, unlike the overhyped La La Land, but a much more pleasing experience. 1950s location spot-on.

I hadn't heard of this movie so took a chance - I'm so glad I did. Exquisite acting, beautiful cinematography and a gentle but entertaining plot. Just delightful.

A Country Girl's Dilemma - Brooklyn review by MW

Spoiler Alert
04/06/2016

A slight but engaging tale of a young woman's escape from a claustrophobic provincial existence in 1950s Ireland to the exciting possibilities of big-city life in New York. Saoirse Ronan is the beautiful, fresh-faced ingénue torn between lovers poor and rich, as well as loyalty to her past, whose mind is finally made up by the stifling bigotry and wagging tongues of Irish country life. It's a story full of charm.

At last a well acted film. - Brooklyn review by NC

Spoiler Alert

No computer graphics, no exploding livers, yet can sit and watch all the way through without loss of concentration on what is going on. Used to be called "acting in films".

Combine film with Canada etc, which always seems to work well. Not a multi million dollar budget i suspect. Must really annoy Spielberg and Brad etc.

Saoirse is brilliant. With Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent would think she an old hand............ and they, of course, do the biz, as always. At least they given some decent lines for once............
