Brooklyn, 2015 - ★★★★

A great start to #LIFF29 and much better than I was expecting. For a lot of the running time it feels like everything you'd expect from an award baiting BBC film. But there are also many unexpected laugh out loud moments (mainly from Julie Walters) and something much deeper running throughout the whole film. By the final third I was hooked enough to be swept away by the ending which so easily could've gone in another direction.
