The heart of this tale is the journey of an immigrant from Ireland finding a new home and herself in 1950s Brooklyn, NY. One of the best picture nominee and rightly so, Brooklyn nails all the right points of what makes a beautiful film. Lead by stunning work of Saoirse Ronan, the emotional journey is on point and felt by the audience, especially my wife. By the end, you wanted to stay in Brooklyn and experience more. Could this win best picture? I honestly don’t know, but this does win my cosign. Take your date to see this if you can.
