John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Brooklyn

brooklynBecky and I went to see the new movie Brooklyn at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch, CO tonight. The IMDb website at Brooklyn. describes the movie as follows…

“An Irish immigrant lands in 1950s Brooklyn, where she quickly falls into a new romance. When her past catches up with her, however, she must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within…”

The Review:  I wasn’t too keen on seeing this movie after reading about it, but Becky talked me into going to see it with her.  I was pleasantly surprised though because the movie was really well done.  It takes place in Ireland in the 1950’s and it is about a woman who’s family is pretty poor and with very little opportunity.

The oldest daughter wants her sister to have a better life, so she arranges to have her sent to America alone to start a new life.  The young woman arrives in America not knowing anyone and goes through the hardships of being an Irish immigrant in the 1950’s.  It has a great deal of heart and it’s a very clean and wholesome movie about what life was like for people who came to America as immigrants and had to start a new life with help from other immigrants who had come before them.

The movie moves slow at times, but the story is very well done.  She ends up going back to Ireland and has to make a decision on if she wants to remain in Ireland or go back to America, which seemed like something many women in her situation would wrestle with, so it was very realistic.  We both really enjoyed it and thought it was worth the price of admission.
