    I had no idea Jim Broadbent and Julie Walters were in this film! I need to change my BAFTA predictions for next year already!

    Can’t say about its awards potential but it looks beautiful.To me Saiorse Ronan looks like young Winslet (compliment ).

    The poster for Brooklyn is a thing of beauty. Pretty, pretty design.

    Fellas this looks like a winner. Anyone who’s doubting that Saoirse Ronan has a real shot at an Oscar nomination (and even a win) is just fooling himself/herself. The entire cast looks tremendous, the story is interesting enough to keep me curious and it looks stunning. I mean… that poster alone…

    Domhnall Gleeson has 3 big movies coming out this year (Star Wars, The Revenant, Brooklyn) and I’m not even counting with Ex Machina, one if this year’s best, most brilliant films. He’s the new it boy!

    Saoirse Ronan, I have been madly in love with you since I first saw the City of Ember… a movie lots didn’t like but I liked it because I love you. Then came the Lovely Bones which you completely owned. Then I finally saw Atonement before watching Hanna that same day, which is one of my favorite movies. I have The Way Back on DVD. I’ve watched How I Live Now 4 times on netflix. I own Budapest Hotel. I secretly liked Violet and Daisey. And I hope you win my dear. It’d make me so happy.

    Just saw the trailer without even knowing it was out (a wonderful surprise) and I am burning to see it. Saoirse is probably my favorite young actors as far as the movies she makes. Brooklyn looks like it’s gonna be one of my favorites. I’ll see it by myself if I have to!

      Brooklyn is such a cinematic tour de force that even the most unsentimental should find aspects to appreciate. If the actors don’t do it for you, then there’s still the luscious score and postcard-like cinematography to get you swooning. At its core, Brooklyn is a film about love, but it’s also about life, in all of its triumphs, amusements and heartache. Expect this one to figure into the Oscar race in Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Adapted Screenplay and with a strong push, Best Supporting Actor for Emory Cohen as well. http://www.awardscircuit.com/2015/09…e-to-remember/

    While the film is filled with glorious performances it is Ronan that clearly and somewhat obviously stands above the rest. Her arc as Eilis is truly one of a palpable transformation and gives the film the necessary weight for it to feel profound in the unexpected ways it is. 4/5 stars

    Five minutes into Brooklyn, a sweeping new drama that reminds us America is a nation of immigrants, my heart melted. About two hours later, I was reminded how much of a sucker I am for a well told but emotional yarn. I’m fairly confident American audiences will gobble up this lovely movie like the fine Irish stew your ma used to make.

    Audiences should warmly embrace Brooklyn when it opens in the United States around Christmas. The cinematography, costumes and musical score are all Oscar-caliber and director John Crowley perfectly captures America in the early 1950s: dance halls, Bing Crosby on the radio and the Dodgers (when they were in Brooklyn, of course).

    Brooklyn is by far, my favorite film at TIFF thus far.

    Just saw it a I was a bit disappointed.

    Perfectly pleasant, well made little film with nice performances but it doesn’t really go anywhere. The plot is extremely thin.

    Ronan is great and Walters would have been a shoo in for a nom if her screentime wasn’t so limited and her character so one dimensional.

    The name ‘Brooklyn’ hints at something sweeping and cinematic but this isn’t like that at all. As a location it barely features.

    Not a bad film by any means just not one that grabbed me at all.

    6/10

    I think Walters is getting Fonda’s supporting actress spot at BAFTA

    I’m surprised how underestimated Ronan is right now. She’s getting rave reviews right now in a critical acclaimed film… sounds like Oscar bait to me
