Brooklyn (2015) Rated PG-13

BrooklynAn Irish immigrant settles in Brooklyn, New York in the 1950s. When she falls in love with a New Yorker, she must decide which life to lead. Starring Saoirse Ronan, Hugh Gormley, Brid Brennan, Julie Walters, Emily Bett Rickards, Jim Broadbent, Emory Cohen, Domhnall Gleeson.

This is a wonderful film centered on a girl trying to make a new life for herself in a new country while longing for her home country and family. Ronan is among the finest of young actresses; her performance was impeccable. Cohen and Gleeson are also strong as the two men vying for her heart.  I didn’t necessarily agree with the decisions she made while still in Ireland, but by the end of the film, she really came into her own. Beautifully filmed, with a universal message, this is a movie worth watching.
