Anyone whose grandparents or great-grandparents (or great-great-grandparents, etc) immigrated from Europe in the early or mid-20th century will feel a special connection to Brooklyn, a swoon-inducing romantic drama that debuted with limited screenings yet major acclaim at Sundance and is racking up more fans this week at the Toronto International Film Festival. The always magnetic Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Hanna) finally gets to flex her natural Irish brogue as Eilis Lacey, a mild-mannered shop clerk in the quiet seaside County Wexford who, with the help of the church, gets the opportunity to live in the United States. Brooklyn gets off to a slow start, admittedly, but that all changes once Eilis meets Tony (the perfectly cast Emory Cohen), a sweet and charming Italian-American plumber who shows up at her church dances admitting that “he likes Irish girls.” The chemistry between Eilis and Tony (as well as Ronan and Cohen) is immediate, and their connection deep.
