A Nice Little Film

Gentle Friends, not too much going on....and I didn't want to let the Blog go a week without a post.  With that in mind I thought a plug for a good film would be a nice thing to Post about.  Since the TeeVee has next to nothing to really watch I've been watching movies rather heavily lately... and Netflix has come through with some winners lately....  the other night I receive a newer film...

Brooklyn Movie Poster

...  and although there were no explosions, car crash or chases, no comic book characters or robots, somehow a film was made......  and what a film "Brooklyn" - 2015 - with a wonderful ensemble cast from the UK and a story by Colin Toibin the 112 minute film just flew by.  It's amazing what a sweet story and good acting can bring to the silver screen.... Hollywood should take notice!!
________________

"Brooklyn" is available on both DVD and Blu Ray and I would highly recommend the film!!
Have a super weekend!!

Take care,
edgar

I read the book and loved it but still haven't seen the movie. Now that it is on Netflix I hope to do so soon.

Edgar, I couldn't agree with you more about this movie. It was my favorite film last year. The soundtrack is beautiful.

The book was excellent. Will try to catch the movie.

I enjoyed the book when it came out, and now I've enjoyed the movie as well. With a screenplay by Nick Nornby, how could I not?

Dearest Edgar: I am with you Hollywood needs a reality check, some of the trash coming out of there is horrible.
We do not go to the show house anymore due to the films are horrible.

As an Irish immigrant myself, I LOVED the film, and found it really true to life; despite being 30 years before my experience, the feelings and emotions are still true.
