"Brooklyn" Movie Review

Oh my word!!! Do I have news for YOU! Time for one of my favorite types of posts: a MOVIE REVIEW! I went to see Brooklyn with my sister in theaters on Sunday night and three days later I still can't stop thinking about it. Are you ready to hear all the details about this movie? I wont spoil anything I promise :)

The movie Brooklyn is based off the novel by Colm Toibin, about an Irish girl from a working family who moves to Brooklyn New York in the 1950's due to lack of opportunities in her home town. She finds work, a place to live, an education, and falls for a dashing and charming Italian fellow who has an effortless charm and hard work ethic. She thinks she has it figured out until she goes back home for a visit and realizes though so much has changed, there is still so much that she loves about Ireland. She mostly just loves how it feels like home. During her visit she is tempted to stay in Ireland with another man she has known for a while. During her visit she sees opportunities start to arise for her and is torn on whether to stay in a place she calls home or go back to Brooklyn, a place that at once terrified her but is now where she has built her an exciting life and has a lovely gentlemen waiting for her.

My Thoughts:
OMG Y'all! The struggle is real because you literally fall for every character in this movie. The girl who plays the main character Eilis has the perfect innocent Irish girl face and you would follow those big eyes anywhere throughout the movie. She has you hooked. Just you wait though until you meet the guys in this story. You can't help but pick favorites but they are both so charming and so different that you can't help but like both. This is a touching movie that gives you insight into the culture of these different areas during this decade. You have to see it!

What You Need To Know:
I would recommend this movie to anyone 14+. There are some scenes that would be considered inappropriate to younger audiences. There is mild language but no talk of sex. There is a really short sex scene shown about mid way through the film however. There is one point when a dead body is shown and a family grieves but it is not too graphic at all. Other than that, the movie shares a positive message and there all the characters serve a positive purpose. There is literally no villain in this movie!

Watch The Trailer:

Well if I haven't gotten the message across already then I don't know what else to do :) This is a fantastic movie so different from anything in the theaters currently. Check it out before it leaves the big screen, you won't regret it!
