BROOKLYN (Dir. John Crowley) – A rich, deeply moving 1950s-set drama, John Crowley’s Brooklyn has been a sensation ever since premiering at Sundance in January. Starring a soulful, haunting Saorise Ronan as an Irish girl torn between her two homes, Ireland and America, and featuring superb performances by the excellent ensemble (Julie Walters and Etan Cohen stand out), Brooklyn is a film that I found very relevant to my life that also left me emotionally fulfilled and satisfied. Expect a slew of Oscar nominations. Fox Searchlight will release the film on November 6.
