Now here's a good date movie. I had no idea this was an Irish movie either, imagine my surprise. I loved this flick, it takes you on a bit of roller-coaster of worry at one or two points in the film but the ride is worth it. 

Loved the supporting cast, loved the leads. Everyone is great in this one. Saoirse (pronounced Seer-Sha) Ronan gives a performance worthy of her Oscar nomination. Jim Broadbent is bittersweet as the guardian-angel priest who sponsors the heroine's trip to America. 

The world-building of 1952 Brooklyn is fantastic. I love seeing the Irish traditions that you'd think would have evaporated by now but I still attend those Irish social dance evenings like the one portrayed in the film. And they are just as boring as they appear in the film :)

Beautiful film.

I liked it, but I didn't quite love it. The actress is terrific, and the immigrant stuff was great. But as it went on with the different relationships, especially back in Ireland, then it kind of wore on me a bit.
