In 1950s Ireland and New York, young Ellis Lacey has to choose between two men and two countries.
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.
