Brook­lyn (M) Ir­ish di­rec­tor John Crowley’s adap­ta­tion of Colm Toibin’s novel is about a young and un­so­phis­ti­cated girl from Ire­land, beau­ti­fully played by Saoirse Ro­nan, who em­i­grates to Amer­ica in the early 1950s and finds her­self con­flicted be­tween her old home and her new home, and be­tween a charm­ing Ital­ian-Amer­i­can (Emory Co­hen) and an equally charm­ing Ir­ish­man (Domh­nall Glee­son). There’s strong sup­port from a fine cast in­clud­ing Julie Wal­ters as the bossy land­lady of a women-only es­tab­lish­ment.
