  • Brooklyn was well-meaning but boring, and ever since “The Lovely Bones”, I firmly stick with my belief that Saorise Ronan is a mediocre actress. Doesn’t help when she has a Stephenie Meyer production on her resume. Ronan doesn’t deserve the accolades. Brie Larson draws circles over her.

  • CityWOOF

    Brooklyn was glorious, sumptuous and suspenseful. Ronan was letter-perfect, as was Cohen and every delicious period detail. Every frame was like a painting. I had Brooklyn at the very top of my 2015 list, until I saw ROOM. Both are incredibly fine films.

    A thoroughly deserved #1 for ”Brooklyn”. One of the best films this awards season. Ronan is a very gifted & true actress (old Hollywood style) who will be around for decades! She deserves every accolade!
