Welcome back to Movie Monday!
I bring you the review of Brooklyn.
Brooklyn was directed by John Crawley and with the help of screenwriter Nick Hornby, cinematographer Yves Bélanger, custom designer Odile Dicks-Mireaux, all accompanied by the most beautiful music provided by Michael Brook, brings together a beautiful story.
A girl called Eilis (Saoirse Ronan) goes away to the United States of America because her sister wants a better future for her. They show us the journey of leaving her home, country, and family and becoming her true self while growing up.
The story takes a very sad turn but even then it doesn’t go Hollywood style, it stays real. Eilis shows her strength in a very beautiful way.
We’re also given a little inside of how politics and social classes used to be back then.
It’s a coming of age movie, and the music makes you feel like you’re “reading” a fairytale.
With only 5 minutes it gave me goosebumps. This movie it’s captivating from the beginning till the end.
Storyline: ☆☆☆☆☆ Beautiful. All I could think was that it was a beautiful movie, like no other.
Characters: ☆☆☆☆☆ They are very real and even if it’s set in the past you can fully relate to them.
Cast: ☆☆☆☆☆ Can we all agree that Saoirse Ronan is Silver Screen royalty?
Photography and mise-en-scène: ☆☆☆☆☆ It’s a big deal when it comes to period movies and this one is charming.
As you can see it’s a 10/10 movie for me, I recommend it to everybody. It covers self-grow and self-empowerment, feminism, romance, grieve, homesickness…
Let me know if you have watched it or will watch it.
Have a nice Monday. I will come back with another post on Wednesday.
