BROOK­LYN ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - DC

Di­rected by John Crowley. Star­ring Saoirse Ro­nan, Domh­nall Glee­son, Jim Broad­bent, Julie Wal­ters

Mov­ing adap­ta­tion of Colm Toíbín’s novel con­cern­ing a Wex­ford woman who em­i­grates to Brook­lyn in the 1950s and finds her­self in a transat­lantic ro­man­tic tri­an­gle. Ro­nan is bril­liant as some­body who is rarely given the chance to ex­press her in­ner tor­ment. The film-mak­ing is not al­ways sub­tle, but it is a tri­umphant blend of so­cial his­tory and reigned-in melo­drama. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 112 min
