Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t’s undeniably charming to see the preternaturally poised Saoirse Ronan, in a performance both polished and feeling..." - 10/30/2015 Empire


5 stars out of 5 -- "The casting throughout is nigh-on flawless. As Eilis, Ronan subtly charts the shift from wide-eyed provincial girl to city sophisticate as much by stance and speech-patterns as by costume and hairstyle." - 10/30/2015 Total Film


"It’s not easy to make a movie as beautiful as BROOKLYN....This is an old-fashioned entertainment, but one so masterfully crafted and heartfelt that it’s hard not to love." -- Grade: A- - 11/05/2015 A.V. Club


"Impeccably directed by John Crowley, feelingly adapted by Nick Hornby from Colm Tóibín's fine novel and blessed with heart-stopping work from star Saoirse Ronan and the rest of the cast, BROOKLYN is about love and heartache, loneliness and intimacy..." - 11/03/2015 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The astonishing Saoirse Ronan lights up the screen in a performance that takes a piece of your heart." - 11/04/2015 Rolling Stone


4 stars out of 4 -- "The director and screenwriter have been gifted with an extraordinary lead actor. In the role of Eilis, Saoirse Ronan is as alert, intelligent, and emotionally alive as the character herself." - 11/04/2015 RogerEbert.com


"[A] lovely film....Set in its titular borough and in a small Irish town in the early 1950s, it is both sharply observed and gently nostalgic." - 11/03/2015 New York Times


"BROOKLYN is an intimate and lovely drama about a young Irish woman finding her way in a strange new homeland while grappling with the life she’s left behind. It’s about letting go of the past, starting over, and struggling to fit in." -- Grade: B+ - 11/05/2015 Entertainment Weekly


"On first sight it endears itself to you, then keeps growing on you, this fable about a small-town Irish girl’s pursuit of happiness as an immigrant arriving in America in the 1950s." - 12/17/2015 Wall Street Journal


"[A] wondrous adaptation of Colm Toibin's marvelous novel....Impeccable." - 12/11/2015 Hollywood Reporter
