Best of '15: Brooklyn

Home is home.

You've seen this movie before...  My Daddy would always lament at the end of a movie like this, "Boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl... yaaaaawwwwnnnn". That being said, this movie is one of the very best of the year. There's a reason stories of love won and lost are so popular, they cut to our very purpose. They send echoes of collective consciousnesses to our very soul. Saoirse Ronan is brilliant, and lovers of romantic cinema (such as myself) will be swept up right along with her on her journey, no matter how familiar. As the quote above says, "Home is home", and this movie feels like home.
