    Last night I watched "Brooklyn" (2015).

    An Irish immigrant lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a romance with a local. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

    Director:
    John Crowley

    Writers:

    Nick Hornby (screenplay), Colm Tóibín (novel) (as Colm Toibin)

    Stars:

    Saoirse Ronan, Emory Cohen, Domhnall Gleeson

    Nominated for
    Oscar Best Motion Picture of the Year:
    Finola Dwyer
    Amanda Posey

    Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
    Saoirse Ronan

    Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay
    Nick Hornby


    I must say I loved this one. The only problem is that the trailer, as usual, gives away too much. Saoirse Ronan is perfectly cast and restrained, giving the sense of a deep inner life as a character that might have been a total bore. Every supporting character is great, especially Jim Broadbent, Julie Walters and the guy who plays Eilis´s love interest, Emory Cohen (see the cutie below). The movie is well-directed, wonderfully photographed, the period is reconstructed to every detail, and the writing avoids clichés. If there´s a romantic (not corny) in you, watch this one, you won´t be disappointed. Plus: "Mad Men"´s Jessica Paré has a small role as her wise workmate in a big store. She seems to belong to that period, doesn´t she?

    I saw a movie with Laurence Olivier & Helen Mirren called "Laurence Olivier Presents: The Collection" on DVD this morning. It was based on an old theatre play and was rather dull to be honest.

    Oh I really enjoyed "Brooklyn" saw it at the cinema earlier this year and it made me cry!

    Another in my ongoing Ealing rewatch. Very enjoyable film.

    I can't find a trailer on YouTube, but a scene from the film can be found here.
