It is here at last: A review of Brooklyn.
I really, truly loved this movie. It was sweet, subtle, heart-wrenching, romantic.... Not to mention all soft and golden and beautiful to watch. Every scene had me and my girlfriends squealing about her outfits.
The storyline is very good. It follows the journey of Eilis, a young Irish girl who goes to work and live in Brooklyn. *shocker!! Her name ISN'T Brooklyn!*
I don't really want to give away much of the story, but let me just say, I LOVE EILIS. And Tony is so sweet, and her boss is hilarious, and her story is beautiful, and she is strong and brave, and quite frankly was an inspiration to me. I want to travel desperately, but am also quite afraid of leaving home, and being homesick. Eilis' strength was encouraging. You'll understand when you watch it. :)
Now for the content. There is only one scene that must be fast forwarded, and it's quite obvious when it happens, so you will have plenty of time to fast forward.
