Hope you are all having a lovely fall weekend. I just had to share this trailer from the best movie I have seen in a long time. Brooklyn is a beautifully crafted story of a young women’s move from Ireland to America to find work and a new life in the early 1950’s. Saoirse Ronan is wonderfully cast in this part as is each character in this story.
Based on the book by Irish writer, Colm Toibin, it’s about homesickness, family, love, growing up and finding your own life. Besides the terrific acting and story, it’s cinematically gorgeous transporting you back to Brooklyn and Ireland in the 50’s. I was charmed by the colors, coats and clothes from that era that they perfectly replicated here.
It’s also a romance and both male leads are adorable and have great chemistry with her.
This movie is so enjoyable you will forget you are in a theatre and that to me is the best.
Right now with all the strife in the world it was a treat to forget it all and get lost in this sweet story. I only wish there were more like it and I think I plan to see it again!
