At the Movies - Brooklyn

Set in 1952, Brooklyn is the story of a a young Irish woman's immigration to the U.S.A. and more specifically, Brooklyn. She falls in love with an Italian American and quickly finds herself torn between her country of origin and her newly found life and love in America. 

With remarkable casting and highly believable performances, the story captures the viewer. The scenes accomplish a sense of nostalgia and the differing characteristics of the two countries featured. This offering is beautifully filmed. If you are interested in a love story that is set is a different era and speaks to traditional values, Brooklyn is a good choice at the movies or when available on DVD or digital download. The movie offers an escape from the typical violent stories involving guns and crime. Brooklyn will warm your heart.
