What's all the fuss about? - Brooklyn review by BE

Spoiler Alert

Seen at the cinema. Although it is well crafted, I found the movie to be plain, tedious and ultimately depressing. It may be that I can relate the scenario to a period in my own life. Julie Walters just plays Julie Walters. I am not a fan.

Beautiful but slight - Brooklyn review by MD

Spoiler Alert

This is a beautifully crafted and emotionally engaging film for the most part, helped by a very good script from Nick Hornby and a cracking central performance by Saoirse Ronan. I thought the first half particularly good at documenting the immigrant experience. However, a weaker second half, the result of the main character not revealing even to her own mother something that in real life she would have done in an instant, spoiled my enjoyment considerably, and left me feeling rather ambivalent overall. What was the point of it all? So, worth a look, yes, but ultimately a fleeting half-pleasure that promised much but did not quite deliver.

Simply beautiful. - Brooklyn review by CC

Spoiler Alert

The trailers had lead me to expect a slightly different film to the one I got - and I was much more pleased with it that I expected to be.

The ability of Saoires Ronan to act her socks off with the slightest twitch of her face makes this film into an amazing insight into one person's fear, longing and growth into confidence.

A wonderful, wonderful film which is as beautiful as it is powerful.
