Synopsis

Brooklyn :-Watch Brooklyn on 123moviestvshow.com,In 1950s Ireland and New York, young Ellis Lacey has to choose between two men and two countries.Brian Friel’s “Philadelphia, Here I Come” is still the great fictional work of the last 50 years or so to deal with the Irish Diaspora but Colm Toibin’s “Brooklyn” runs it a close second. Sadly, the only film version of Friel’s play was a somewhat dull affair, part of the American Film Theatre series. It preserved a great play but it wasn’t much of a film, whereas John Crowley’s screen version of Toibin’s novel is as close to perfect as we are likely to get. It preserves the feel of the book, (thanks to a flawless adaptation by Nick Hornby), but this is also a real film; large, expansive, magical and one of the best films you are likely to see this year.
It’s the story of one young girl’s awakening, to the world and to herself. She’s Eilis and at the start of the film she is moving from her home town of Enniscorthy in Ireland’s County Wexford to Brooklyn, a world away on the other side of the Atlantic. She goes at the behest of her sister, Rose so she might have a life that might otherwise be denied her back in Ireland. Homesick at first, she finally finds happiness with a hugely likable and very handsome Italian boy until a family tragedy forces her to return to Ireland.
