Brooklyn — A woman's simple and beautiful emotional coming of age journey — 9*/10

  • Story: Poignant, better than one could imagine after all the noise made about the film, because it's simple even if it's full of details and it's not romantically or emotionally full of itself. No huge drama, just lots of emotions normal people are used to swim with. There's even a good number of laughs.
  • Setting: Very realistic. I don't know if it's historically accurate, but it certainly feels like it, if a bit clean. It's all presented strictly from the point of view of the woman coming of age and that is excellent.
  • Ending: Great.
  • Dialogs: Solid, realistic.
  • Characters: Lots of depth, especially emotional.
  • Acting: Perfect.
  • Known actors: Saoirse Ronan and Jim Broadbent.
  • Visuals: Oversaturated colors that really captivates.
  • Camera Work: Some excellent shots, but for an exception. Lots of closeup that give intimacy and a personal point of view.
  • Costumes: Excellent, probably very close to the period in question.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Very good, much more so if you like the genre.
  • Who is it for? Those looking for a nice period piece with a simple romance. It's excellent and I recommend it to anyone, but it might not be for everyone.
