Brooklyn Summary

In 1950s Ireland and New York, young Ellis Lacey has to choose between two men and two countries.

Will Leitch

I could have hung out with everyone in Brooklyn for hours: It's a world you won't want to leave.

Connie Ogle

With compassion, a touch of melancholy and a sense of wonder, Brooklyn reveals the profound truths in a simple, familiar story, ending on a note that's achingly bittersweet, no matter where you're from.

Mara Reinstein

It's a witty, dreamy love letter to independence and self-discovery - no matter where you call home.

James Berardinelli

Although not without moments of sadness and tragedy, Brooklyn is sublimely uplifting and life affirming.

James Adams

Fans of the novel, of which I'm one, may find the film sweeter and more romantic than Toibin's original conception.
