3.5 out of 5 stars

Home is where the heart is

Sumptuous, if at times saccharine, adaptation of Colm Toibin’s novel anchored by a sublime central performance from Saoirse Ronan.


One thought on “Brooklyn

  1. A fair review.

    And reflects the consensus amongst the Subtitled Friends.
    But a little part of me wants to give it an extra 1/2 star for Saoirse Ronan’s stunning central performance.

    And for that moment – Now Voyager- like where she stands up to Nettles and shows how much she has developed since the start of the movie.

    Perhaps I loved this just a wee bit more than the other Friends for its charm and warmth.
