Director John Crowley’s Brooklyn is like a beautiful jewel that increases in beauty the more it’s polished.
It’s a coming-of-age story about a shy girl, who escapes the boredom of her small town life in Ireland to come to America.
But, here, she owns the screen as she morphs from a truly plain Jane into a vibrantly beautiful woman.
Whether you’re male or female, bring some tissues and enjoy this special treat.
I give Brooklyn a 4.8 out of 5.
