MORE CAST & CREW
Based on the story from one of the best-selling novel, written by Colm Tóibín, “ Brooklyn,” is a fictional romantic movie. The story is about how a young Irish girl, who is an American immigrate, finds her true love.
Plot: The story is about Eilis Lacey a young woman living in Ireland with her mother and elder sister, Rose. She doesn’t have a job and is insisted by her sister to travel to “Brooklyn,” America, to find one. Eilis travels to Brooklyn and takes up a job in a departmental store, and undertakes night classes in book-keeping. As the monotony prevails for days, she starts to feel homesick, and finally, comes to terms with it. One day at an Irish dance class she meets Tony Fiorello a young Italian boy and eventually falls in love with him.
Their relationship goes well until she gets a message about the death of her sister. Before she travels back to Ireland, she secretly marries Tony. Back in her hometown, her mother forces to marry an Irish boy, who is interested in her, and settle down. Will Eilis tell her mother the truth? Watch this romantic saga to find out.
Analysis: The direction by John Crowley is done well. Many scenes in the movie have zoomed-in and given a close look at Saoirse Ronan (Eilis), to highlight on the innocence and susceptibility, on her face. The screenplay by Nick Hornby brought imaginations to reality in the true sense. He brought inconsistency to the essence of love and faithfulness, just as written by Colm Tóibín.
Star Performances: Saoirse Ronan, playing the role of Eilis, has given a remarkable performance till the end of the movie. She presented herself in the scenes, as though she were Eilis in reality. She captures the attention for the character, by mixing strength, openness, and innocence in her character.
What’s there? 1. Acting by the lead cast is good. 2. The screenplay of the movie is done very beautifully.
What’s not there? 1. The direction in the scenes where there is sudden shift between locations could have been smoother. 2. Acting by the supporting casts could have been better.
Verdict: If you are a person who believes in dreamy romance, this movie is the one for you.
