“Brooklyn” Looks Like A Winner

The trailer for John Crowley’s “Brooklyn,” based on the Coim Toibin novel of the same name, is now online. The movie debuted in January at Sundance to strong reviews. Critics said that this is a solid, heartfelt, seriously romantic winner — classic and “old school” in the finest sense of that term. Best Picture prospects seem assured, and Saoirse Ronan (again — her first name is pronounced “Sersha”) is a near-lock for a Best Actress nomination. Ditto Crowley for Best Director and Nick Hornby for Best Adapted Screenplay. “Brooklyn” is the story of an Irish immigrant making her way in 1950s Brooklyn.
