Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Although not without moments of sadness and tragedy, Brooklyn is sublimely uplifting and life affirming.
Fresh: I could have hung out with everyone in Brooklyn for hours: It's a world you won't want to leave.
Fresh: Brooklyn is a simple story affectingly told, bridging the emotional gulf one feels when ambition and home are an ocean apart and love is uncertain in either place.
Fresh: Fans of the novel, of which I'm one, may find the film sweeter and more romantic than Toibin's original conception.
Just wow! What a great movie!
What a poetic and beautiful movie about Irish people who immigrated and settled to Brooklyn,New York! Must watch!!
One of the best films I've seen in forever. It's funny and sweet. Has a lot of potential :D.
