So yeah, Brooklyn may not be full of excitement or boundary-pushing and that's why I don't consider it to be especially great, but I give it credit for actually being a surprisingly pleasant little movie that did actually manage to involve a fairly interesting conflict underneath its inert-looking surface.
The story begins in Ireland during the early 1950's where we meet Eilis (Ronan),a young Irish girl who is preparing to begin a new life in Brooklyn, New York where a job and a place to live have already been arranged for her.

Latter in the film when she travels back to Ireland we feel as she feels, torn between her ancestral homeland in Ireland and her new home in America.
