Watch Brooklyn – Eilis Lacey followed her sister, Rose’s, plan to leave Ireland and find a better future and job in the US. She departs terribly, enduring seasickness and a terrible relationship with her cabin mates. A kind traveler gives her advice to live in Brooklyn, where many Irish immigrants live. Eilis settles in Brooklyn and becomes close to Father Flood, a Catholic priest. She gets a job in a department store and falls in love with an Italian boy named Tony. News from home sends Eilis back to Ireland, away from Tony. Written by Gusde
One of the best films you will see this year.
Brian Friel’s “Philadelphia, Here I Come” is still the great fictional work of the last 50 years or so to deal with the Irish Diaspora but Colm Toibin’s “Brooklyn” runs it a close second. Sadly, the only film version of Friel’s play was a somewhat dull affair, part of the American Film Theatre series. It preserved a great play but it wasn’t much of a film, whereas John Crowley’s screen version of Toibin’s novel is as close to perfect as we are likely to get. It preserves the feel of the book, (thanks to a flawless adaptation by Nick Hornby), but this is also a real film; large, expansive, magical and one of the best films you are likely to see this year. … by Martin Bradley
